You must understand and have experience of the key phases of an Agile project: Feasibility, Discovery and Delivery; understand how to manage risk and be able to ensure best practice with regards to SDLC.

BJSS Consultants are commonly required to manage a variety of teams, from a fully resourced BJSS team located either in BJSS premises or the client’s site, to running hybrid BJSS/client teams and in some cases being the soul representative from BJSS, managing client/third party mixed teams.
It is the job of a BJSS Delivery Manager to make a contribution to the delivery by ensuring that they are actively working towards a no surprises delivery. The delivery teams look to the Delivery manager to be ahead of the game when it comes to obstacles and blockers, be adaptable and resilient, have a high attention to detail and be adaptable whilst solving problems. As a client facing role, being able to bring together business and technical stakeholders is crucial to managing successful delivery. BJSS Delivery Managers must be able to communicate effectively and with different audiences, be able to manage upwardly and downwardly to a variety of stakeholders – from teams of Engineers, Product Owners and Analysts, to key representatives elsewhere in the business and outside of the delivery team.
