Day to day:

The Global Financial Transformation team is looking to bring on 2 – 3 Financial Planning & Analysis Project Managers. We are looking for individuals who have strong PMO capabilities and have worked on large transformation projects.

Job responsibilities:

This team is re-building the operating model and all of FP&A processes for U.S. So they will have a design, a road map, a sequence of projects to do these transformations (the work they are currently doing with Accenture). They will be working on defining and laying out the road map and being able to take off.

Project will take 18 – 36 months to complete: Transforming FP&A process, leveraging these new technologies and implementing it in a new organization. There are many other PM’s doing the same thing, running different processes, then there are streams of technology that will intersect you in points of your execution.

(Execution of Road Map) : Make a plan , work the plan , drive people, etc.


This individual will come into this project with an existing set process. They will be given the plan for what the team wants to do and accomplish. They will be working on how the team plans & forecasts financial plans for the retail pharmacy. They need to be able to manage all the things that go on with putting change in place, not just activity, but work with HR. Very much about process and people. They will interact with tech but mostly working with the business.

Most of the work will be supporting the finance teams, going through the shift in the way their activity is organized. Centralizing their center of excellence. Align the process with the technology stream, and deliver the changes in that process. They will need to be able to support all these teams.

It’s a road map of all the changes they need to make (organized into several projects). The team will sequence these projects. This person will have 1 or more projects over 24 – 36 month timeframe to implement. So maybe they have one that is 9 months, and another queued up that is 18, etc. it really just depends on the persons profile & how we decide to organize the implementation.

The manager is hiring for 2 – 3 Project Managers: They will be working on different initiatives that intertwine overtime. Running their own one or two or three initiative streams. They would be delivering the change in our processes (way of working & tools) but focusing on different topics & aspects of that. For example, one may be focused on redoing the way they do their 3 way planning process. And another one would be working on introducing a planning tool to support a different process & changing a series of steps to deliver monthly forecasting reporting. Each piece of change can be an initiative in itself. All of them will be integrated with the bigger systems initiative projects they have going on right now.
