Your Challenge

As we continue our journey towards digital relevance, Philips Image Guided Therapy (IGT) needs a collaborative leader to drive strategic activities and transformational capabilities around all aspects of data. This includes but is not limited to definition, creation, traceability, connectivity, integration, performance, and enablement for new business.

The Senior Director Data Transformation works in partnership with the Business Data Leaders in both the IGT Systems and IGT Devices organizations to execute the IGT Data Strategy, Roadmap, and Capability Plan. This role focuses on cross-Business and cross-Cluster intersections, interactions with external to IGT organizations (eg. Centers of Excellence, Working Groups, Enterprise Information Management).

Additionally, the Senior Director Data Transformation leverages and builds the IGT Data community, which is comprised of every member of IGT. This community is enabled through organizational expectations, roles and responsibilities across all functions, and the intersection with our Philips and IGT Data SteerCos.  

Solid foundational work is in place already, but current course and speed are not enough, as this topic will touch in the end all activities and functions of the company. A strong central coordination and transformation leadership is required, to ensure a consistent definition and execution of the approach to become excellent in this field in an appropriate “Data and AI savvy” way, in line with our published Data and AI Principles and the Philips Business System.

Your Responsibilities

  • Carry out a maturity assessment and needs analysis of Data Strategy, including Enablers, Competencies, Platforms and Practices in a number of important application domains

  • Define objectives and KPI’s related to the Strategy, including goal cascading to Business and Functions
  • If required, engage with external advisors for specific topics and external benchmarking if required.

After establishment, the expectation will be that work-streams and capabilities are driven according to execution plans, bringing them to life through staff within our Businesses and Cluster. As the organization and our business transform, so will our data maturity, the role, and the team which supports the leader.

You are a part of the IGT Cluster Innovation team, where you join the LT as a member of the team which is accountable to drive various Innovation transformation activities related to Engineering Excellence, Innovation Excellence, Portfolio Management, Enabling Technologies such as AR/VR, AI, Collaboration Platforms, and Cloud, and Platform Architectures. You will be an active contributor to settling the focus and pace of our transformation initiatives, as well as in looking for the connection points with other staff members who are also driving transformation across our Business and Cluster.  

Your Team

The position is established within the Image Guided Therapy Cluster Innovation staff, with oversight of our entire Image Guided Therapy eco-system, including Systems, Devices, and Ventures.
