  • Support the Head of IAM to develop a holistic IAM strategy for JLR taking into account above points and understanding lifecycle process, provisioning processes across different environments and internal competencies – understanding JLR’s strengths and struggles
  • Engage deeply with relevant stakeholders to ensure IAM strategy and technology decisions support long-term organisational objectives, optimise prioritisation and resource allocation, and manage risks
  • Understand the current and future IAM needs ensuring the IAM Agile Portfolio Strategic themes include the agreed business outcomes and develop a lean execution plan based on a critical path, tightly coupled with business risk impact
