  • The plan includes flexibility to adapt to unforeseen yet crucial tasks, ensuring responsiveness to evolving project requirements.

Oversight & Review

  • The position and performance will be reviewed by the Integrations guild on a quarterly basis, upon delivery of a self-evaluation to the committee.
