Strategic Planner, Lead

The Challenge:  

Are you passionate about helping organizations successfully implement change and advance their operations? Whether it’s process improvement, performance measurement, or business management analysis, it comes down to one thing: learning how an organization works and making it better. Although many companies know where they want to go, getting there can be a challenge. Thankfully, you’ll improve the systems that move entire organizations forward. It’s why we’re looking for a strategy consultant like you who can identify long term goals and create the processes needed to achieve them. 

This is an opportunity to have a direct impact on DoD strategic planning. As a strategy consultant on our team, you’ll engage with clients at the senior executive level to help them understand their organization and crystallize their goals. You’ll need to ask the right questions to draw out your client’s objectives and vision. Your client will look to you to show them their organization from the outside. From unrealized potential to systemic challenges, you’ll provide your client with a holistic view of their organization, as well as the multiple paths they can take to transform. As the strategy expert, you’ll identify and anticipate your client’s needs as you create their way forward.
