As a member of the IS eBusiness Management team, you are responsible for managing, developing, and leading a multi-disciplinary team of highly skilled employees. Your role includes leading the specific functional responsibilities of your team, which involves overseeing team performance and deliverables. However, your role as a leader within our organization requires more than the management of resources and day-to-day operations. As a steward of the company, you are charged with the development and execution of your team's strategic vision and plan and ensuring that your team's actions align with the larger goals of the company and the IS Division.
As the primary conduit between your employees and upper leadership, your role in communicating and modeling the values and guiding principles of our company culture is of vital importance. All members of IS Management should strive to consciously and consistently foster a culture of engagement, trust, and "open door" communication.
