As an authority on execution, your contribution will include managing and leading highly complex, strategic, and sometimes global projects for Retail People. In the role of PM, you are accountable for the planning, execution and success of People-specific projects, which directly impact the People org or key focus areas. You will provide the critical strategy and long term structure for strategic, sometimes multi-year projects. You will also provide project oversight and timelines for any cross-functional projects involving multiple partners, which impact dynamic business groups.
