Bpx Values:

 

Good organizations know what they do and how they do it. Great organizations also understand why they do it.

Our values are:

  • Safety: Safety is good business. Everything we do relies upon the safety of our workforce and the communities around us. We care about the safe management of the environment. We are committed to safely delivering energy to the world.
  • Respect: We respect the world in which we operate. It begins with compliance with laws and regulations. We hold ourselves to the highest ethical standards and behave in ways that earn the trust of others. We depend on the relationships we have and respect each other and those we work with. We value diversity of people and thought. We care about the consequences of our decisions, large and small, on those around us.
  • Excellence: We are in a hazardous business and are committed to excellence through the systematic and disciplined management of our operations. We follow and uphold the rules and standards we set for our company. We commit to quality outcomes, have a thirst to learn, and to improve. If something is not right, we correct it.
  • Courage: What we do is rarely easy. Achieving the best outcomes often requires the courage to face difficulty, to speak up and stand by what we believe. We always strive to do the right thing. We explore new ways of thinking and are unafraid to ask for help. We are honest with ourselves, and actively seek feedback from others. We aim for an enduring legacy, despite the short-term priorities of our world.
  • One Team: Whatever the strength of the individual, we will accomplish more together. We put the team ahead of our personal success and commit to building its capability. We trust each other to deliver on our respective obligations.

[VM(E1]I suggest spelling this out to ensure the candidate understands what this refers to. It could be Portfolio Management, Program Management, Project Management, etc.

[SH2]Great call out. Thank you for catching that.

[VM(E3]Will this individual be expected to manage direct reports? If so, I think that should be called out.

[SH4]No sir. To my knowledge, there will be no direct reports.

[VM(E5]I feel this individual not having direct reports will be problematic to their success. The amount of work and breadth of work this individual needs to do is quite vast. This individual will need others to share the vision, coach each of the business and technology teams leveraging the standards, processes, etc.

 

Defining the strategy and continuous improvement of this strategy to be used by an enterprise is a full-time job. Next, there is training it, coaching it, monitoring it, providing improvement ideas, reimplementing the new ideas across the enterprise, and the cycle continues.

[VM(E6]Why limit it to Denver?

[SH7]Fair challenge. I thought I had removed it. I do not think we should limit this to Denver.
