Danaher Corporation PMO Director, ABL - Product Lifecycle Management in Bronshoj, Denmark
Are you an experienced PMO professional with a "can-do" attitude? Is your background in the Medical Device industry or a similar regulated field? And are you motivated by bringing structure and by improving project portfolio- and resource management? Then look no further!
Our mission is to help health professionals make diagnostic decisions which save lives – since we mainly work with critical ill patients at the emergency room and in the intensive care unit.
The ABL Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) organization is part of Global R&D and ensures that our blood gas analyzers (ABLs) and accessories are reliable, accessible, and preferred by our customers.
The ABL PLM team consists of 90 associates and is responsible for the majority of Radiometers released products. Overall, we are working on products within the scope of QDC, hence Quality, Delivery, and Cost.
Your responsibility ranges from operational to strategical level
In this role, your main responsibility is the department’s PMO (Project Management Office) activities such as project portfolio- and resource management. The portfolio covers approximately 75 concurrent projects and the PMO responsibility includes project intake, progress tracking, reporting, as well as monthly and quarterly reviews with the PLM- and Global R&D leadership teams.
You will work cross-functionally with colleagues in Denmark and Poland to ensure sufficient cross-functional resource allocation to PLM-projects based on proactive alignment among R&D departments, Operations, Regulatory Affairs (RA), Quality Assurance (QA), Clinical & Medical Affairs (C&MA) and Marketing. You will lead PLM project prioritization based on real-time analysis of demand versus capacity/capabilities.
Importantly, you will also become a Danaher Business System (DBS) agent supporting the PLM team in improving our LEAN culture and skills to drive continuous improvement in projects and processes.
Furthermore, your areas of responsibilities will cover:
· Prepare material for quarterly project portfolio reviews and execution alignment reviews
· Manage PLM roadmaps, incl. quarterly updates and alignment with stakeholders
· Create streamlined and clear status reporting for PLM-project progress reviews
· Collect and consolidate input for weekly- and monthly reviews of in-field product quality metrics
· Carry out monthly updates of financial forecasts for the PLM organization incl. actuals and accruals
· Create yearly financial budgets based on input from stakeholders
You will report to the Senior Director, ABL PLM and work closely together with both Global R&D’s PMO director and Senior DBS (LEAN) leader.

You enjoy structure, and at the same time demonstrate the ability to work pragmatic in a fast paced and changing environment with multiple priorities. Additionally, you should have great written, verbal, and interpersonal communications skills with experience in facilitation for an audience.
