About Financial Information Reporting Solutions:

Global Financial Information Reporting Solutions (FIRS) was established to define and deliver target end state operating model and technology requirements to strategically source data required for both internal and external reporting, and assist in positioning the firm to better respond to changing regulatory environments and internal demand requests. FIRS is focused on providing environmental readiness (fit-for-use), data quality and enrichment, and enhanced reporting and analysis across critical corporate internal and external reporting platforms.

Overview of the FIRS Strategic Financial Platform Team:

The Strategic Financial Platform (“SFP”) Team within FIRS consists of three functions, Release Management, User Support & Operations and Change Management. Together, these functions seek to provide best-in-class operational support for the SFP environment, which includes the Firmwide Forecasting Framework (F3) platform and several other component applications such as self-service calculator creation, automated MEV publication and workflow.

The Change Management Team within FIRS SFP is tasked with organizing the book of work (BOW) by coordinating with one or multiple SFP Application Product Owners while assembling project plans and timelines for implementation. They develop the multi-year feature based roadmap and partner with SFP Release Management to break roadmaps down into release plans.

SFP Change Managers develop and provide key performance metrics to FIRS leadership regarding the overall Forecasting environment. They also partner with senior corporate leadership to provide operational insight and perspective for strategic initiatives.

SFP Change Management partners with Technology to ensure quality delivery of solutions by leveraging an Agile software development lifecycle (SDLC). Based on regular coordination with SFP User Support & Operations, SFP Change Management documents new requirements to reflect what team members have “heard” from the perspective of the “voice of the customer”. Finally, Change Management drafts executive messaging and escalates issues to senior leadership in FIRS, Technology and Corporate Finance.

  • Process Improvement: Identify, analyze and lead process improvements on a continual basis for the MEV process.
  • Communication: With end users of our financial reporting applications, leverage written and verbal communication skills to understand and triage their issues while often translating the nature of the issues to both senior leadership and Technology partners for troubleshooting, prioritization and resolution.
  • Manage Annual BoW and New Demand: Own the annual Book of Work (BoW) and Roadmap for multiple FIRS’ applications (i.e., projects) rolling up into one or more programs, as well as manage demand intake and review (i.e., requests for new features in SFP supported applications), as well as manage changes to Roadmap timelines and priorities.
  • Remediate Issues: Support the closure of internally and externally driven remediation efforts (e.g., management and regulatory presentations, ad-hoc analyses and data cleanse activities).
  • Report Status: Provide on-time and accurate reporting, as well as ongoing updates to all project team members and notify all the stakeholders of any shifting priority up front to allow informed decision-making.
