"Accenture is a fast-paced, learning-oriented environment where I get to explore different opportunities in various sectors."

How I put change in motion

As a business analyst, I help companies within the Energy industry to continuously enhance its digital platforms through the implementation of new functionalities.

While the scope and nature of my specific tasks vary depending on client requirements, in general, my role involves interacting with clients and senior stakeholders as well as overseeing the integrated project teams’ deliverables. I assume these roles to secure the proper execution and implementation of the project phases.

A day in my life

I’m currently working with a national utilities company in the Energy industry. Each day revolves around connecting with project sponsors, project leads, and operational team leads to discuss the progress of the project. We conduct many of these meetings via teleconference using Skype for Business or Microsoft Teams. We also use tools like SharePoint and OneDrive for safe and secure file sharing, making collaborating easy and efficient.

My role requires me to shape and design functional specifications of modules which act as the single source of truth to how a module should behave / function when it is implemented.

Apart from that, to monitor deliverables across project units, I have frequent connects with the operational leads and team members to ascertain that the appropriate solution in the test environment (pre-deployment) are performing as per the expected design.

Working with people from all over the world excites me. Collaborating with clients and teams from various backgrounds has expanded my understanding of culture and broadened my perspective in terms of ideation and problem-solving.

My team is made up of talented individuals who make work fun! They are all amazing people who encourage and inspire me to do better each time. They’re also supportive, reliable and see me through tough times. We have a safe working environment where I can raise any key concerns and escalations without feeling judged.

Furthermore, our strong chemistry lets us perform and deliver together as a team. As cheesy as it sounds, the bond I have with my team is like a well-oiled engine: all moving parts vibrating in synchronization, delivering maximum efficiency.

The three things I like most about Accenture are the learning opportunities, exposure to industry leaders and people. The training options here are overflowing. Since working here, I’ve boosted my stakeholder management, planning and communication skills. I’ve taken a few training programs that such as Design Thinking School, Storytelling Workshop and the five-day Consulting University, where I honed my core consulting skills and practiced Agile Ways of Working.

On my days off, I enjoy some serious me-time. Nothing beats curling up in a comfy bed with my Kindle, catching up on my reading. Apart from that, I travel. I love going abroad and soaking up an entirely foreign culture, meeting new people and exploring new places.

My advice

Be bold! Don’t be afraid to voice out your thoughts. Step out of your comfort zone and take on all challenges. You’ll always have good Accenture people to help you learn and grow along the way!
