Job title: Lead Portfolio Manager
Location: Ada, MI (Corporate)
What do we need:
We are looking for a Digital Portfolio Manager to drive agile practices and maturity across our new Digital CRM Portfolio team, as well as be an Agile coach to the corresponding product owner teams.
What’s special about this team:
This Portfolio is unique in its collaboration and partnership across all digital portfolios at Amway as personalization is a key focus that sits across all digital experiences. The vision of the portfolio is to provide omni-channel communications and tools, designed by Sales & Marketing programs, to engage Amway Distributors and Customers through digital experiences. This team is passionate about anticipating the needs of our Amway distributors and reaching out to them to keep them engaged and motivated, making it 10x easier for them to attract and retain customers. This new team is high energy and motivating to modernize digital experiences, if you are high energy, have fresh ideas then this team is right for you!
How you would contribute to the role:
In this role, you would be responsible for 2 separate, but equally important focuses:
First, you would manage the agile operations of the Digital CRM portfolio. This includes making sure agile ceremonies are scheduled and prepared for in the proper cadence and making sure agile practices are happening at the right time (such as dependency planning, investment reviews of epics, etc.). You will work with the 8-10 product owner teams working on applications in the CRM portfolio and tracking how all are doing with their respective projects and maturity in agile practices.
Second, you will function as an Agile champion within the Portfolio Management layer, helping your fellow Portfolio Managers keep up with Amway’s bespoke form of Agile. You would be an extension of our Agile Transformation Office. You will help the team elevate their Agile abilities and keep them on a path for continued success.
You’ll know you are successful in this role if the CRM portfolio is continuing to mature in agile practices and is progressing in a sustainable cadence of planning and execution, as opposed to having dramatic shifts that throw plans off track.
What’s in it for you?
The CRM portfolio is the largest portfolio in the Digital division, and both the Digital division and CRM portfolio are getting significant investment. Amway is doing true Agile development, with 2 week sprints and moving towards daily releases. This is an opportunity to be part of a team that is progressing Amway’s CRM capabilities daily.
This is the right fit for you if:
- You have a background in Portfolio Management, having been exposed to demand management, agile ceremonies, success tracking, dependency planning, and stakeholder management, focusing on creating Digital experiences.
- If you don’t have a Program or Portfolio Management background, then you must have a Scrum Master background and agile certification.
- You have a background championing Agile within a development environment, preferably in a coaching capacity.
