Dana Farber’s SVP of Innovation is looking for an Innovation Director to aid in the tactical execution of the strategic vision and the initial planning of leading-edge programs as well as acting as a sounding board for novel concepts. The Innovation Director will articulate the SVP's vision while interfacing with multiple departments to mobilize efforts for planned project execution and subsequently track progress against planned execution. The right candidate will also be expected to interface with SVP direct and indirect reports to solve problems, mediate disputes, and deal with issues before they are brought to the SVP in order to promote cross functional collaboration.
