  • Build team and maintain team effectiveness and satisfaction, and lead the CDTs to achieve their goals through the networks of people/functions represented in the teams. When necessary, negotiate with line function heads on project deliverables.
  • Challenge all functions on the CDTs to ensure that all issues and questions are being addressed, and that line function input into strategy and plans is adequate to meet the needs of the compound.
  • Identify potential issues and lead contingency planning; lead CDTs problem solving and apply decision-making tools and techniques. Drive CDTs to make effective and efficient decisions.
