How I put change in motion

Being a Management Consultant, I help clients realize their potential through the power of outsourcing. Together with my colleagues, I assess their current and future business needs and explore how we can elevate their business with the offerings that we have at Accenture. It is a rather strategic decision, so we need to make sure that we align the vision of the C-suite, but also the nitty gritty details in every business process to ensure that we support the client in all levels of the organization.

The most exciting project I have worked on was when we needed to stand-up a greenfield finance organization for a carved-out entity of a large global company. This meant that we had to, along with the executives of the client, design and orchestrate their finance processes and operating model from scratch, and afterwards run the finance organization for the company. The go-live for this company was only four months after we had our first meeting with the client, and by then we needed to provide them with a fully functional finance organization. I was in the US for the first couple of weeks to ideate and align with the executives from the client whereafter there was the entire process of standing up the entire organization in India in one of the many Accenture Delivery Centers.

A day in my life

I am usually working with two to three different engagements, depending on the intensity of the assignments. My team is officially a Nordic team, but I work consistently with the whole global network of Accenture on a daily basis. In almost all of our engagements, we interact with experts from Europe, US, Latin America, and Asia. A typical day could start with a status meeting with my stakeholders in the Nordics and India. Based on this conversation, I will reach out to the European capability network, and in the afternoon, I interact with my delivery team in Costa Rica. Finally, I have another status meeting late in the evening as the team from the West Coast is just starting their day.

At Accenture, you have the benefits of a large and small company at once. A large company in that you have the opportunity to reach out to a global network of experts, you have the possibility of going abroad on projects or even moving to other cities and countries to work permanently, and finally you can move around in the different functions in the company. I started out in Strategy & Consulting but have since then moved to Operations. It is a small company as you are close to leads within the different domains. Depending on your own seniority, that lead might be local, or as you move up the ladder, they might be European or global. Nevertheless, there is always close proximity to the nearest leader. I am lucky enough to be interacting with my Nordic Lead on a regular basis which is truly inspiring and fruitful for my future development.

When I am off duty, I like to change my scenery and clear my mind by seeing friends, going out for dinner and drinks, concerts and festivals, and finally try to improve my status as a mediocre tennis player.
