Transformation Delivery overview
Transformation Delivery, a part of Business Consulting, is a multi-disciplinary group of transformation experts who help bring about complex change, organised into three teams: Project, Programme & Portfolio Management, Agile & Product Management, and Capital Programme Delivery. The team support our clients’ journey end to end from shaping to execution on large-scale transformations to create successful outcomes.


About Agile & Product Management
Agile & Product Management works with organisations to re-imagine what it means to grow, looking beyond the financial and solving the problems that really matter. Bringing together product managers, business analysts and agile transformation leads, we support our clients to outcome-centric success from design to delivery to optimisation through the creation of new propositions, digitally enabled products and data.


The opportunity
As a Product Manager you will define and deliver market-facing and digitally enabled products for our clients.  Working within a cross-functional team, you will be responsible for defining product visions, building delivery backlogs and roadmaps and then overseeing the transition of product features from concept to design to implementation and release.  You will balance a user centered approach with a more pragmatic delivery focus to achieve measurable results for our client. 


You will help to shape and build our product management capability and market proposition by contributing to a range of practice development initiatives.



Your key responsibilities

  • Accountability for the delivery of major digital product components
  • Develop product vision and roadmaps across brand, process, people, commercial, experience and technology 
  • Manage feature prioritisation in complex stakeholder environments across multiple business functions - Product, Marketing, Sales, Service, Finance and Technology
  • Identify and define new product requirements using an integration combination of requirements elicitation techniques - qualitative research, quantitative research, stakeholder workshops, current state analysis, competitor research, etc.
  • Develop and implement quantitative methods to measure the success of delivered products and drive continuous improvement
  • Lead the functional definition of key features at a detailed user story implementation level, working with architects and developers to ensure viability and delivery
  • Lead a team of business analysts to ensure all elements of the feature being defined are considered including business alignment, operational impact, non-functional needs and launch methodology
  • Work in a consultative manner with client organisations to refine and optimise their approach to change delivery 
  • Champion the development of the product management discipline, including mentoring and training of more junior team members



Skills and attributes for success

  • Robust point of view and vision for the future of chosen industries and functional areas
  • Personal resilience and resourcefulness to advocate for and deliver change in the face of organisational resistance
  • Creative, high energy and high impact, with the ability to inspire innovation and build consensus on new products and services
  • Detail orientated with clear experience of turning high level ideas into detailed, tangible requirements that can be related back to client outcomes
  • Broad understanding of digital and customer-led change activities across finance, research, service design, process, operating model, technology, marketing and user experience



To qualify for the role, you must have

  • Bachelors and / or Masters degree in design, business or technology subject areas or relevant experience
  • Demonstrated track record involved in the creation and optimisation of over 3 large digital products, with responsibility on each that extends beyond software delivery
  • Credible functional expert, with demonstrable track record in at least one of marketing, sales/eCommerce, service, technology or finance
  • Demonstrated track record of successful new business scale-up
  • Strong people management capability and track record in line management of consulting organisations
  • Excellent communication skills and ability to produce high-quality written deliverables in fluent English
