• Work in multi-organization IPTs
• Actively represent and pursue the best interests of an assigned project, leveraging experience and expertise to ensure mission goals and objectives (stated and implied) are foremost in analysis and subsequent recommendations for actions/plans.
• Work with government and contractor personnel to propose, influence, and design plans for cloud utilization, as appropriate.
• Proactive Risk Management identification, analysis, assessment, control, as well as development of mitigation strategies (avoidance, minimization, or elimination of identified or unacceptable risks).
• Active participant in meetings, working groups, teams
• Compilation of reports, presentations, white papers, recommendations, and position statements
• Excellent written and oral presentation skills
