  • Measure project performance using appropriate tools and techniques
  • Communicate progress and plans to Foundation staff in presentations and written summaries
  • Build and manage relationships with stakeholders
  • Ensure resource availability and allocation
  • Monitor plans, manage risks and mitigations and escalate any project matters as required and through the appropriate channels
