Decision Support Designer

The Opportunity:

When an organization has multiple moving parts in its processes, it can be difficult to critically examine them. To be more efficient and effective, it needs a business process specialist to learn its mission end-to-end and provide ways to change for the better. That’s why we need you, an experienced business process specialist who knows how to analyze every aspect of your customer’s operations and give them the steps to improve their process.

As an expert in defense missions, your unique background inspires you to think bigger, push further, and ask questions others don’t. We need your extensive industry knowledge and advisory skills to guide teams as they solve some of our clients’ most complex problems—and find solutions that keep our nation safe. As a business process specialist on our team, you’ll analyze your client’s current operating environment and identify areas for improvement. You’ll facilitate discussions with leadership and engineers and analysts to help refine your client’s definition of success and identify current frustrations. You’ll design data collection plans, facilitate workshops, and communicate your research and illustrative analysis to help establish understanding and agreement from key stakeholders.

Using process improvement, you’ll directly impact the Department of Defense’s mission by helping determine courses of action supporting operational fidelity, experimentation, and prototyping. You’ll provide your client with recommendations along with a firm grasp of the quantitative or qualitative results they can expect. This is your chance to grow experience while deepening your process improvement and project management skills. Work with us as we help Department of Defense’s mission evolve. Our team will be performing a variety of classified analyses of future digital platform concepts for the DoD community. This position is a hybrid role with a combination of working at a Booz Allen office or client site and working remotely
