[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.
