Together with the Leadership Team you will seek insights into these new, sustainable growth areas and determine a go to market strategy considering the potential role of new disruptive trends like, for example, digital twins, instant grocery delivery or the metaverse.

Your tasks typically exist of:

·       Work on real client problems ranging over a wide scope of industries (e.g. Consumer Goods, Utilities, Banking, High-tech, etc.) and topics (e.g. Sustainability, Data & Analytics, Supply Chain, etc.)

·       Present results to your project team and/or our leadership team
