&amp;amp;lt;li&amp;amp;gt;Identifying and securing required resources and resolving conflicting resource requirements;&amp;amp;lt;/li&amp;amp;gt;&amp;lt;br /&amp;gt;&lt;br /&gt;<br />

&amp;amp;lt;li&amp;amp;gt;A good understanding of change management;&amp;amp;lt;/li&amp;amp;gt;&amp;lt;br /&amp;gt;&lt;br /&gt;<br />
&amp;amp;lt;li&amp;amp;gt;The ability to continuously seek improvements during project delivery;&amp;amp;lt;/li&amp;amp;gt;&amp;lt;br /&amp;gt;&lt;br /&gt;<br />
&amp;amp;lt;li&amp;amp;gt;The resilience and determination to succeed where task outcomes appear at risk.&amp;amp;lt;/li&amp;amp;gt;&amp;lt;br /&amp;gt;&lt;br /&gt;<br />
