Manager Transformation, Process and Project Office

 

Software AG's mission is to help organisations "turn data into value".

We’re a global software company founded over 50 years ago and continually growing and innovating. With a presence in over 70 countries, our customers include many of the world’s major airlines, well-known makers of sodas, chocolate and PCs, and key players in the rapidly expanding world of industrial IoT.

 

We’re passionate about software, passionate about our people, and passionate about using technology to create truly world-class products. 

 

YOU’VE PROBABLY USED OUR SOFTWARE—IF YOU LIVE ON PLANET EARTH

The name “Software AG” may never appear on your online banking screen, your sweet wrapper or the cup from your barista. You may never see “Software AG” in the movie’s credits, on your mouse or on the side of the plane you just flew —but our software is virtually everywhere. The fact is leading brands use Software AG technology every day to serve you better. Leading organizations trust us. One reason: We’re driven by customer success.  Every day, our decisions and actions are guided by the values of this Software AG development mission statement.

 

Position Purpose

 

You will work in Software AG’s Transformation, Process and Project Office (TTP) and will focus on tasks within the project and portfolio management practice.

You will help in the successful delivery of programs and projects through the provision of strategic and operational (project management) support; helping manage the portfolio by orchestrating incoming demands, synchronizing requirements, evaluating impacts on resources, costs and processes is also part of the responsibility. Help developing blueprints and standards (e.g. internal “Prime” methodology, PM standard tooling, change management framework) within the team to continuously improve the practice will add to the tasks. Running and managing cadences, such as “result to action meetings” completes the area of responsibility. This role is impacting the consistency and quality of our projects as well as the quality of our company-wide decision making.

This is an opportunity to add value by working on a newly founded and high-impact department within Software AG, right at the heart of our transformation.
