* Interface with internal teams, outside vendors, third party support teams, and various external resources to accomplish the established goals provided by leadership
* Act as product, process, and/or project champion for the improvements identified
* Identify underutilized or redundant resources to reduce wastes in cost or time management
* Always ask “Can we automate this?”
