I am currently the project management office (PMO) lead for a Financial Services project. As PMO lead, it is important for me to deliver high-quality work to the client and to create strong relationships with key stakeholders, from the client to vendors and on to Accenture. By strengthening these relationships, I am able to get good support for my team and the work, which is very necessary in a multivendor environment.
My PMO role entails working closely with the client team and Accenture leads on scope management, work plan and resources monitoring, and tracking the project’s progress. I also facilitate meetings with key stakeholders to brainstorm and discuss the project support model, identify risks, and suggest solutions. To support clients effectively and help them maximize their business value, I apply both the business and technical knowledge I learned at university.
I reserve part of my time to meet with team members to provide them guidance and inspire them at work.
After work, I and my colleagues enjoy finding a place to have dinner, just hang out and have fun together. On weekends, I normally spend my time relaxing by doing yoga, shopping and going to the spa. I also love trying out new restaurants and cafes.
Each day at Accenture, motivate yourself to be well-prepared for challenges, to be flexible, to learn new things, and to work among the diverse cultures in this global company.
