Programme Launch Project Manager
At Pearson, we’re committed to a world that’s always learning and to our talented team who makes it all possible. From bringing lectures vividly to life to turning textbooks into laptop lessons, we are always re-examining the way people learn best, whether it’s one child in our own backyard or an education community across the globe. We are bold thinkers and standout innovators who motivate each other to explore new frontiers in an environment that supports and inspires us to always be better. By pushing the boundaries of technology — and each other to surpass these boundaries — we create seeds of learning that become the catalyst for the world’s innovations, personal and global, large and small.
The Launch Program Manager is the primary point of contact for overseeing and enabling new program launches and ensuring services frameworks are in place to deliver long term program success. To achieve this, the Launch Program Manager is responsible for developing comprehensive launch plans and holding all service providers responsible for delivering their launch contributions. The Launch Program Manager will also be responsible for the delivery of all launch documentation and will contribute as an author to certain documents. To ensure successful alignment with the university partner, the Launch Program Manager will establish appropriate relationships with university stakeholders and communication and change controls to effectively progress all tasks.
To ensure that Alliance program portfolio growth is maintained, the Launch Program Manager is responsible for management of the full program of launches across a long term launch schedule requiring the coordination and management of multiple streams of activity necessary to continually launch new programs over the course of a year and to optimize business processes to enable accelerated and increased numbers of launches over time. Management of the launch program requires continued collaboration with each functional team across University Partnerships to provide insight and leadership on improved practice for ongoing launch activities.
In addition to local launch activity, the Launch Program Manager will interact with other staff in the Services and Direct Delivery line of business to continually assess best practice for launch activities and work to improve consistency and scale of delivery across Pearson's business globally.
