The Job
As a Director & Program Manager, you will be one of the main leaders in the program, responsible for ensuring the investment in the program achieves the anticipated benefits as outlined by the region. Your leadership team includes the Client Executive, an Engagement Executive, and other senior roles. You will be working mainly with the team in the region Västra Götalandsregionen VGR), but you will also be a part of the Nordic leadership team given the importance and impact of the role. You will report to the General Manager for Sweden. The program is hugely influential on both the regional healthcare system and a national Swedish level.
To be successful in the job it is crucial that you have held similar positions, i.e. complex full suite implementations (Acute + Ambulatory) with a large number of internal and external stakeholders, including political interests. The successful candidate should have proven success managing an implementation with multiple project managers – both internal and external – and a number of organizational units with separate leadership structures (i.e., numerous hospitals, primary care centers, laboratory, and home care in the same system). This includes creating, agreeing, and managing the end-to-end project plan in close connection with your client counterparts. You will have an understanding of organizational change management best practices and ensure the strategies are used for program success. You will lead, coordinate, and develop a team to manage the program over the implementation’s lifecycle. You must have strong communication skills with demonstrated competency sustaining positive relationships with client executives. You will have excellent presentation skills and be able to have an open dialogue with both Cerner and client executive leadership. Due to the nature of the project, the role demands a combination of strategic, tactical and operational responsibilities.
You will ensure project progress is communicated through a variety of mediums: leading status meetings, email/Teams communications, developing project presentations to ensure that information related to progress and issues/risks are being communicated with the appropriate stakeholders. You will work closely with cross-functional leaders including consulting, IP development, technology, sales, and support to ensure the program’s success.
Your work will be complex and vary in both strategic focus and tactical execution. This position requires a cross-functional individual who won’t miss the details but is strategic enough to see across the program, across the region, and across internal Cerner business units. You will identify opportunities for improvement and manage the implementation to improve program execution.
You should have a proven track record of working with leaders in large programs to create sustainable structures and governance that ensure program success. You should have experience in taking a systematic approach to breaking down large, complex problems and leveraging the structure of the program to resolve the issue. The program is entering a phase where structure and transparency are essential for success and your role will be to provide the leadership through this critical phase. You should have experience in adapting your style and approach to different situations and stakeholders.
If you’re out to change the world in ways that matter, we want to hear from you. As a Cerner Associate you will be joining an inclusive, social and innovative workplace that has a strong emphasis on developing talent and promotion from within. You will be rewarded for your hard work with a competitive salary and a host of additional benefits.
