Job Description

Information Technology Function Responsibilities This IT Infrastructure Associate Project Manager will deliver IT projects for the Infrastructure portion of Symantec, which includes networking, data centers, telecommunications, collaboration, and workstation services. Although these projects may include software deployments, they are primarily focused on the underlying system, hardware and utility components that support other IT services. The projects range from operational projects, such as large office moves and equipment upgrades and replacements, to projects that extend and enhance the infrastructure capabilities. Projects may also involve internal deployment of Symantec products, as Symantec has a strong commitment to employ and showcase its own products.

This project manager is an individual contributor (with no direct managerial responsibilities for other employees) who will manage projects through forming and engaging teams with common, well-defined project goals, using leadership qualities to drive team performance, and influencing the behavior of project team members to collaborate in achieving project objectives. The IT Infrastructure Associate Project Manager will employ well-understood and shared methodologies for project organization and execution. Infrastructure projects are delivered within an ITIL framework. In the projects, this project manager will lead teams organized in a matrix relationship with technical management.

The teams for IT infrastructure projects may include any combination of Symantec-internal employees, temporary and contract workers, vendors and outsourced IT service providers. Productive, cooperative relationships are also required across Symantec functional departments such as Workplace Planning (Facilities), IT Applications and Maintenance, Business Solutions, Global Information Security and Compliance. The projects are frequently remotely delivered, and the extended project team is globally dispersed.

Responsibilities for this position also include:

- Manage on multiple active projects of moderate complexity. When a large, complex project is assigned, may work a single project.

- Develop the details of approved project proposals into well-defined scope statements and project management plans.

- Solicit, secure and engage appropriate resources to fulfill project objectives.

- Engage cross-functionally across Symantec departments and functional areas as appropriate to ensure project success.

- Focus and lead project teams to deliver results that fulfill business requirements and expectations.

- Provide end-to-end accountability for project management and delivery.

- Manage scope, budget and schedule according to project plans, actively managing issues and risks to keep projects on track.

- Create and maintain expense forecasts and schedule.

- Track and report on project health, progress and status.

- Employ company-standard and industry best practices for project delivery and infrastructure frameworks.

- Stay current and engaged with Symantec's Project Management Office - its personnel and standard practices.

- Ensure communication occurs and is effective with all stakeholder types in the projects.

- Facilitate project steering committee and governance decisions. Chair steering committee meetings when such meetings are part of the project management plan.

- Demonstrate flexibility working with internationally based team members.

- Foster a cooperative, results oriented and rewarding team environment.

- Ensure all project activities comply with security and change management requirements.

- Ensure project deliverables can be successfully transitioned to operational services.

- Provide quality oversight on all deliverables.

- Establish project success criteria and determine the degree to which the project achieved the stated objectives. Qualifications
