Associates within the Operations Leadership Program (OLP) will be exposed to a variety of different job experiences depending on enterprise projects, initiatives and business need. Most commonly, OLP associates will gain exposure to two types of roles: Project Management and People Management.
Project Management Roles
In a project management role, an associate will contribute to the implementation of a large enterprise project as a project team member. You’ll also lead your own small to medium-size projects.
You will gain valuable business exposure as you interact with multiple departments and different business leaders. You may also have the opportunity to use your projects to earn certifications such as Six Sigma Green Belt, Certified Associate in Project Management (CAPM), or Prosci Change Management. Project managers develop key skills such as managing and measuring work, organizational agility, communication, and perseverance.
People Management Roles
Associates who manage teams have direct reports with responsibilities including taking your employees through a full performance cycle, including check in conversations, and coaching employees to ensure the team meets it overall objectives. You may also have the opportunity to hire new team members and work on talent identification and selection. People managers develop key skills such as conflict management, motivating others and managing vision and purpose.
