Job Description:
Passion. Purpose. Impact. CJP is at the heart of Greater Boston's Jewish community, but our reach is felt around the world. We bring together the resources, volunteers, leadership, and expertise to care for people in need, advocate for Israel, and ensure a vibrant Jewish future. Together, we're helping struggling families find financial stability, making Jewish learning relevant and inclusive, connecting the next generation to Jewish life, and so much more. Our greatest resource is our people — the staff, volunteers, partners and leaders who help make Greater Boston’s Jewish community a welcoming home. It’s this energy and commitment that drive CJP’s mission. We are one of Boston's oldest and most respected philanthropic organizations and we are currently seeking a Director, Project Management Office

The Director of the Project Management Office is a new position for CJP, reporting to the Senior Director, Organizational Strategy. CJP’s commitment to becoming a center for project management excellence has led the organization to invest in the establishment of a Project Management Office (PMO). The office was created to support and enable our ability to better manage the end-to-end service delivery model, for how we manage projects, events and processes, across the organization.

The Director of the PMO will possess and demonstrate prior proven results and experience managing a project planning and delivery system in a business or not-for-profit environment. This experience will include refining both traditional and agile project management methodologies to work seamlessly in different situations, overseeing a large portfolio of 50-100 projects, coaching a project management team to achieve high levels of project management success, and producing project portfolio reporting.

The Director of the PMO will be a highly analytical individual who is both comfortable and effective working in a highly matrixed organization. The position also requires the person be adept at synthesizing various project and reporting technologies into CJP’s Service Delivery Model to achieve CJP’s overall objectives.

ESSENTIAL FUNCTIONS:

• Deliver a robust, thoroughly developed, efficient, effective project management framework to manage the end-to-end project management process for the entire organization. This will include project methodologies, communication templates, standard project operating procedures, project templates, training, and checklists.
• Assess the validity of projects at the front end, assigning resource capability, and tracking and monitoring the progress from implementation through completion. The PMO will also utilize CJP’s standard Cohort and Segment engagement model.
• Create a formal project approval process that will incorporate all the appropriate decision-makers, approvers, recommenders, and subject matter experts in the approval of all CJP projects.
• Design project portfolio dashboards which will provide visibility to projects aligned with CJP’s key goals and initiative to multiple audiences displaying the status, priority, capacity utilization, and resource allocation for all current and future projects that have completed the project initiation phase.
• Deliver project-related ad hoc reporting that can be used as part of presentations to the board of directors, key donors, and senior management.
• Provide complete resource management for each project identifying gaps in advance such that arrangements can be made to address these deficits.
• Develop a support structure to include regular check-ins where project managers can seek advice on projects before their projects are in trouble. These check-ins will also provide advice on getting projects approved through the formal project approval process.
• Recommend and provide, trainings, lunch and learns, seminars, and workshops both in-house and off-site that will enhance the project managers interest, skills, and overall competence in project management.
• Implement a postmortem process at the end of each project or event, to determine how successful each event was and document and incorporate improvement processes for the future.
• Other duties as assigned with or without accommodation.
