    Background

    Our retail store units are still an integral part of our omnichannel sales approach. To effectively utilize our most important resource, our co-workers, Ingka is on a journey to improve the digital solutions that support with staff planning, scheduling, timekeeping and relevant supporting processes. For this purpose, Ingka has set up a product organization within Group Digital supporting the People Planning domain. This organization consists of several product teams that develop and maintain both self-developed products as well as externally bought products. Ingka has an ambitious roadmap to deliver these products to the Ingka markets in the coming years. To ensure that the product team can focus on product development and support, we are working to expand our rollout capability and are looking for support in this area.

    The scope of the consultant services is to :

    The consultant will take the role of project manager (leader within Ingka) and manage the rollout of our people planning digital products to several countries. This requires coordination with our teams within Group Digital (product teams and engineering), country stakeholders and the relevant vendors. The project leader will manage the rollout team assigned to the county rollouts. The project leader sits within Group Digital people planning product domain and reports to the program manager. The project leader is responsible for managing the scope, timeline, budget and risks of the country rollouts. The role will require occasional travel to the rollout countries. Tasks include facilitating workshops, leading status meetings and reporting status to all relevant stakeholders. Initially, the consultant will support Ingka with creating a best practice rollout approach to ensure we can deliver these products with a shorter time to market.
