  • Prepare and manage project plans, and address critical issues contributing to problems or delays on project
  • Establish and monitor key project metrics for operational transformation projects
  • Provide management with reports, metrics, tools, etc., that illustrate the status of project
  • Manage project budget for both expense and capital against the original project budget
  • Coach to clarify assignments and deliverables; mentor others in project management practices; review quality of work and manage the integration of team members work


Our practice is growing, and we're looking to add to our professional staff. The successful candidate will have:

  • 5 years experience in consulting or industry leadership position, 10 years experience preferred

  • Proven track record as a Senior Manager or Project Manager for Operational Transformation initiatives, managing projects to specifications while dealing with challenges such as cross-team dependencies, changing schedules, and constantly evolving requirements
  • High- responsibility business leadership (situations where the company would fail in its endeavors if you failed)
  • Ability to work independently and in a team environment
  • Experience with healthcare industry claims processing systems, such as Trizetto Facets, PowerMHS, Diamond, etc.
  • Deep expertise across healthcare payer products, including commercial HMO, PPO, Consumer Driven Health Plans, Pharmacy, Medicare Advantage, and Medicare Part A and Part B
