-Excellent facilitation and leadership skills necessary to lead and facilitate multi-disciplinary teams of technical experts through planning and scheduling discussions, including conflict resolution skills necessary to resolve differing opinions, scheduling conflicts, and resource allocations.

-Expert interpersonal, verbal, and written communication skills necessary to effectively collaborate in a team environment.

Desired Qualifications

-Advanced experience leading the development and management of enterprise- and/or integrated schedules, applying the principles of project management to development of a large, complex, inter-related schedule.
