Contribute to the successful realization of the project portfolio by executing a number of IT projects simultaneously in a structured manner. This in order to implement skeyes' strategy.

What does a skeyes IT project manager do?

After initial capture and validation of an initiative, it is up to the IT project manager to define a tailor-made approach in consultation with the parties involved. This tailor-made approach takes into account the specific project context, existing project standards as well as the needs of the in-company customer.

This includes among other things:

  • Defining the scope and validating it with relevant stakeholders.
  • Determining material, human and financial resources and verifying that these resources are or will be available.
  • Drawing up a customised governance, which provides for regular consultation for progress reporting and steering as well as defining and communicating roles and responsibilities.
  • Developing a planning that takes into account the various steps to be completed within the project process, as well as the mutual and external dependencies, in consultation with the necessary experts.
  • Guaranteeing quality of delivery by drawing up a test strategy that provides for the necessary test cycles and validations.
  • Defining a tailor-made communication plan.

In addition to implementing these essential fundamentals in terms of project approach, it is up to the IT project manager to take a leading role within project execution, report progress, detect problems in a timely manner and mitigate them appropriately as well as forge a cohesive project team for productive collaboration.

This includes among other things:

  • Stimulating individual motivation, teamwork, as well as realising a productive relationship with external suppliers.
  • Following up on the project plan and supporting the project team in its implementation.
  • In coordination with our procurement department, taking a leading role in defining and evaluating public tenders.
  • Identifying, reporting and mitigating risk factors that may lead to delays or blockages in project implementation.
  • Ensuring that all parties involved are aware of the state of play, the main risks and challenges as well as the decisions taken.
  • Ensuring that the project is delivered in a structured manner in accordance with the applicable procedures as well as initially specified project dimensions (budget, time, scope, quality).
  • Coordinating test activities and associated release validations for quality assurance purposes.
  • Providing hand-over after project implementation to ensure its integration into daily activities without adversely affecting them.
