Business Initiatives Manager, Arts and Cultural
13 hours ago
The Manager, Business Initiatives role is a leadership position that functions as a program manager that enables the delivery of the business unit’s growth initiatives. Typically, these initiatives a result from the Long Range Plan or the Annual Operating Plan and are cross function both within the Business unit and throughout Blackbaud. For example, while the BBMS COE broadly handles Merchant Services priorities, they rely on the Business Units to provide Initiative leadership unique to a given Vertical (i.e. in the case of Arts and Cultural, BBMS working with the BU Initiatives Leader to identify other Software targets to “wire up” BBMS to and leading, through vertical market expertise, the pursuit and execution of that activity). Another example would be leading our Annual Operating Plan. The Business Initiatives leader works closely with Corporate Strategy, RDO and other groups to serve as the Vertical representative needed to size, support and operationalize specific AOP priorities. The role provides bandwidth to the Vertical GM allowing the GM to focus on the strategic, while the business initiatives leaders focuses on the more tactical.
