  • Software requirements definition to recognised standards and managing these requirements from classification to cascade, and managing test case completion for delivery gateways
  • Working with in-house software suppliers and network teams to create an integrated delivery plan
  • Working with the external suppliers to create and execute a delivery plan that meets stakeholders needs, programme costs and supports attribute maturity at programme milestones
  • Engaging with suppliers in weekly reviews on progress and blockers
  • Responsibility for releasing and release activities of SW to manufacturing and build teams
