The group gets new engineering tasks as either improvement to the existing systems or an initiative to build new systems to meet the business requirements. In both cases, the work starts off with discussions/meetings with a business group to obtain clear understanding of what's needed. As a project manager, you will be participating in these discussions and meetings along with engineering managers to collect/define/plan what needs to be accomplished. This initial phase will also involve spawning internal discussions with engineering managers as well as the infrastructure teams to further understand the capability of the existing systems to reach consensus on whether to use them or to build a new one.
