  • Manage scope within customer engagements. Identify changing requirements as they arise, determine their impact on scope, and ensure all stakeholders are aware and agree with the changes.
  • Maintain a close working relationship with the customer, as a "Trusted Advisor". Set clear expectations, challenge assumptions, solicit feedback, and take ownership of project deliverables.
  • Maintain relevant certifications on cloud technologies and stay informed of key industry trends.
  • Proactively identify additional sales opportunities through the duration of the project.
