Generally, development and delivery of executive level presentations that clearly define project timelines and identify risks is also a critical skill.  The candidate must be a change agent who can influence stakeholders to consider innovative solutions and provide factual analysis to support the decision making process.  The candidate must be results oriented and able to clearly articulate any issues impeding progress along with proposed resolution and recommendations. Proven data analysis, controls design, and operating model development skills are essential.  The team will be measured by the success of completed adoptions, process improvements and gained efficiencies.
