  • Internal and external customer coordination to elicit, define and capture strategic enterprise and system-level capabilities/requirements to satisfy a variety of mission objectives
  • Build consensus for requirements by leading internal and external customers in TEMs.
  • Perform end-to-end analysis to determine which requirements may already be satisfied by existing systems and which requirements need to be allocated to new or existing systems
  • Work with both agile teams to develop epics and waterfall legacy/heritage programs using traditional requirement "shall" statements
  • Establish and maintain enterprise baseline integrity in conjunction with Configuration Management
  • Manage criteria/requirements, epics, features and user stories within JIRA, Confluence, DOORS NextGen and NCMS DOORS.
