  • Communicate in a clear and concise manner to IT and to the business (including senior managers) at all stages of the project lifecycle to build relationships and gain commitment.
  • Support UAT during all sprints to ensure requirements have been delivered and are ready for release.
  • Work closely with IT and the business when new functionality is released to production to ensure a smooth transition to the new process.
