Mrs Tanya Brooklyn
Genomics Surveillance Implementation Manager
As Implementation Manager, I am responsible for a team of Project Managers providing support to the Genomics Surveillance Unit. We deliver projects with our colleagues as a 'team', collaborating throughout the process to drive successful outcomes and deliver change. Our approach is supportive and guiding, with clearly defined deliverables, benefits and associated measures of success. We manage progress monitoring and reporting throughout the process and operate within a risk assessed model to provide assurance and appropriate management.
I like to consider myself a dedicated, supportive and flexible individual, my main goal being to make a real difference as a leader. Through being a positive contributor and ambassador I always strive to deliver quality and value to stakeholders, promoting a consistent and positive understanding of change to deliver successful projects. Throughout the process I always try to make it an enjoyable experience for all those involved, encouraging everyone to achieve great results.
Having built my early career in finance, qualifying as an accountant, I then enjoyed many subsequent years developing experience in consultancy and relationship management, with my main focus in project, programme and change management. Throughout this time I have supported many varied organisations, learning and adapting through each experience and taking that experience to the next project as appropriate.
Whilst the role of the Implementation Management team involves defining and driving programme and project management standards and best practice, to ensure a consistent implementation approach across all projects, we are also mindful to be flexible and ensure that the approach is relevant to each specific project and team.
