Rapid Adaptive Management Program Manager (location flexible)

Rapid Adaptive Management Program Manager (location flexible)

Type of offer:

Transform How Conservation Happens
We are facing serious global biodiversity and climate crises, and the teams tackling these challenges are operating in an increasingly complex and dynamic world. These realities demand different ways of working, which is where the Agility Lab comes in. Rapid Adaptive Management (RAM), one of the Agility Lab’s offerings, is an implementation approach for teams navigating uncertainty as they build solutions to these complex challenges. RAM changes how teams work – and how they think about their work – so they can learn their way to impact. We have been co-creating and validating RAM for about two years and are turning our attention to scalability for the program. Communications and operations will be key components of the RAM Program Manager’s work.

Communicate About RAM
Developing and sharing clear, compelling communication about the purpose and content of RAM to a variety of audiences will be a key component of the RAM Program Manager’s work. As we scale RAM, the Program Manager will test a variety of approaches to communication to learn and adapt and lock in on effective approaches to communication.

Operationalize For Scale
The RAM Program Manager will use their keen eye for process to ensure that the RAM experience for teams and coaches is smooth, intuitive, responsive, and replicable. We’re looking for someone who strives to create supportive, simple systems that engage humans – rather than trying to turn humans into machines.
