About the job
In this position, you’re responsible for our project portfolio management and you thoroughly look into how we can improve our capabilities and frameworks, and become even more successful in this line of work. Together with project managers across the IT organization and the project portfolio coordinator in your team, you prepare detailed, reliable and accurate information to support decision making regarding what initiatives to run. You also follow up on project metrics, as well as develop and maintain models and documentation that increases transparency and high quality in our project portfolio performance. Another important part of your assignment is to ensure alignment with our internal project guidelines, and you offer both training and communication support to our project managers and steering groups.

To further enhance our overall project management competence and delivery, you shape the continuous improvement of processes and ways of working, share valuable knowledge and identify best-practices for our project managers.
