What are some senior management roles offered by Microsoft?

After working as a product manager/project manager for a long time, many managers start wondering about moving ahead and getting more responsible job roles.

Some of the senior-level management roles are as follows:

Senior Program manager

Senior program managers are in charge of the day-to-day operations of their programs and projects, including program scheduling, planning, and pricing.

Some senior program managers may also assist in managing other program employees and establishing standard operating procedures to help control any program hazards.

They also undertake quality and cost control activities and evaluations and monitor important program performance metrics.

Senior program managers also do continual research to identify and create effective project management practices.
