In partnership with others, the VP, Strategy Realization is responsible for realizing the value defined in the strategic plan. This work will require you to:
  • Define, protect, and confirm our intent with solution design and decision criteria. This is the deliberate, thoughtful work of testing and re-testing that we're always focused on the right things and that those things are realized in a responsible way.
  • Build organizational commitment to changes through change management practices. This is done through a beautiful, highly effective partnership with our McKesson Org & Change CoE. They are an extension of our team and bring the methodology, tools, and expertise to bear on the work.

  • Optimize the employee and customer experience via "limited-view" portfolio management. We aren't air traffic controllers, but we are experience designers. It's our role to ensure the work we're involved in creates or contributes to a positive experience.
  • Build a team of diverse practitioners to perform like-work at varying levels. We're a growing team and we'll look to you to attract and manage diverse talent with the mindset and skills needed to achieve our results.
  • Support budget and workforce planning efforts, including managing RFPs, SOWs, and COs with vendor partners and consultants.
