By integrating these services, we provide our clients with the flexible support they need to protect and leverage data across any part of their organization. Simply put, Focal Point is the next generation of risk management.
The Focal Point Engagement Manager is a highly skilled and experienced practitioner who coordinates and manages a wide array of identity and access management (IAM) projects for Focal Point’s customer-facing engagements with Fortune 500 companies in the US and Canada. The projects are largely based on the Oracle suite of IAM tools (OIM, OAM, OAAM, OPAM, etc.), but other tools may be used as those from SailPoint and ForgeRock. Focal Point builds and supports identity and access management solutions that are highly integrated with the customer’s environment.
The Engagement Manager partners with business and technology stakeholders in establishing high performance project teams and providing overall project management on projects from initiation through production deployment and closeout. This entails overseeing multiple project teams, which may consist of resources from Focal Point, the client, and other suppliers. The Engagement Manager is a highly visible leadership role, collaborating with strategic business leaders as well as tactical implementation teams. The Engagement Manager must possess strong skills and experience in schedule management, financial management, communications management, risk management and scope management. Experience working in a Project Management Office (PMO) and working with PMO processes is required. Experience leading Waterfall-SDLC or Agile-Scrum software development projects is highly desired. The EM may be required to travel up to 50% of the time and handle multiple small to medium-sized projects at the same time, under the general direction of the PMO Manager.
The key difference between the Engagement Manager and a traditional Project Manager is the Engagement Manager’s responsibility for overall client satisfaction, client relationship building, and developing new business, in addition to managing the successful delivery of in-flight projects.
