You will work with the Product Management team responsible for building SaaS Commerce features and the Product BU teams wanting to onboard to the new platform. The objective will be to facilitate the BUs in coming up with detailed onboarding plans, which you would then manage.

There would be at least 6-8 Product BUs that would onboard to the new platform, for which their individual plans would be consolidated and rationalized to create a roadmap of BU onboarding.

This would require regular engagement with the implementation team and other internal stakeholders, in tracking upcoming activities, risk tracking and escalations, executive briefings on the progress, communication, change management and other related activities.
