What's it like to be a Delivery Manager?

A Delivery Manager functions similarly to project managers and works with stakeholders to develop programs and systems. They manage a team of Developers to create software products and solutions. Through efficient use of management skills, they ensure that their team builds a product through each step of the development cycle, from alpha to beta and, finally, production. A Delivery Manager also creates training programs for potential users while overseeing troubleshooting measures.

  • Coordinating with other managers to identify project scope and resource needs.
  • Negotiating with internal and external stakeholders, including upper management.
  • Setting project deadlines and ensures their team meets and delivers on time.
  • Managing prioritization and delegates tasks to appropriate team members.
  • Creating a collaborative and positive work culture with their developers.
  • Responding to and lead the developers through project obstacles.
  • Providing training programs and troubleshooting services to potential users.
