Your role

  • Review current capabilities and processes, as well as identified strategic vision;
  • Design transformation plan, including detailed roadmap, stakeholders involved and relevant milestones;
  • Reinforce the accountability and ownership of the tribes in using SNOW to create transparency on progress and dependencies
  • Identify early-on and escalate as needed any issues that need resolution and/or a decision to accelerate implementation
  • Manage execution of key programs and provide regular updates for the ING JMT BE+NL, with proposals based on benefits delivery schedule, issues and resources;
  • Link with ING Group initiatives and build a bankwide network of support.
