Description and Requirements


Lenovo is currently seeking a Technical Product Enablement Manager to assist the global offering team to create comprehensive, innovative, and cost-effective, client-based managed services for Lenovo’s enterprise customers. This candidate will work hand-in-hand with a global product offering manager to provide consultative guidance for the technical requirements, technologies and tools needed to craft and deliver new service offerings based on modern architectures with automation principles. They will help envision the architecture strategy and then write the technical blueprint including necessary process designs. These will be included as part of the larger solution document to be handed off to the global delivery and/or IT team to deliver.

Duties and Responsibilities:

As the technical enablement lead, you will need to collaborate across multiple organizations including, but not limited to, internal development, services strategy, service delivery, geography solution architects, sales teams; finance, operations; and when necessary, customers and business partners. Cross-collaboration is a must for the success of the role but ideally, you will also have a self-starter personality and proactive approach.

Post-launch, you will be responsible for training the regional Solution Architects on how to support sales teams when pitching and quoting the managed service in Request for quotes (RFPs/RFQs), as part of standard or Device-as-a-Service deals. You would help create a standard Statement of Work (SOW) template for regional SAs to use to capture any unique customer requirements to augment the standard managed service offering. You should be familiar with how to develop SOW contracts to ensure that requirements are explicitly documented to mitigate risk.

While not primarily a customer-facing role, during the transition launch period, you may be asked to help the regional solution architects with pre-sales activities including customer presentations and briefings, provide input during deal qualification reviews, prepare content for solution reviews with key stakeholders, or help facilitate customer workshops to validate and scope project requirements.

The ideal candidate will have extensive previous experience designing enterprise IT client-managed services (eg: Service Desks, Endpoint Management), and have been heavily involved in customer implementations from the project kickoff, stakeholder coordination, and end solution deliverables, including Key performance indicators (KPIs), and delivery.  Experience designing services with heavy reliance on ITSM tools (e.g. ServiceNow) and automation tools, as the base platform, is a must. You should have a solid understanding of how emerging technologies are shifting the managed services landscape and be able to stand behind your technical guidance/blueprint, being mindful that  feedback/input from relevant channels, could lead to a better solution.

If you would like to be part of a team helping to shape new managed services offerings and assist product managers with the technical architecture that goes into the services, this job is for you.
