On Process Improvement & Communication

My most recent role involved cost recovery from external partners that received invoices from my client for services on a quarterly basis. These services were related to providing various things from business support to access to certain business applications and third-party licenses.

There were lots of changes to the scope of these different services in any given quarter, which affected forecasted cash flow as well as what went on the invoices. Producing a single invoice was an achievement that necessitated weekly meetings with the external partner, as well as separate meetings internally with the departments providing the service, the program management office and our legal counsel to ensure compliance with service agreement terms.

Success meant providing the backup behind the costs in the invoices, as well as open communication and clear expectations set for times when items were under dispute.
