  • The ability to build and maintain professional relationships with a diverse set of colleagues, clients, suppliers and other stakeholders.
  • An understanding of Agile project delivery, with experience using a variety of supporting tools and techniques (e.g., Planning Increments, SCRUM, Kanban, JIRA, Lean Start Up, Value Proposition Canvas etc.).
