How I put change in motion

In my current role as Business Analyst, my client is a high performance car manufacturer. My colleagues in the project are located in Norway, Denmark, Czech Republic, and Italy. I am part of an agile team that optimizes and develops functionality for Salesforce. Right now, I am working with updating the case management system to make life a little bit easier for the agents working in customer care. This means that I am gathering requirements from the relevant stakeholders as well as performing modifications to the system.

I have really enjoyed all the projects that I have been staffed on, but I remember a while back when I worked with an online retail client as a coordinator for their payment partner companies, it was a great experience to connect with people all over the globe. It was sometimes tricky to fit in meetings spanning over three time zones, but the people were great! On the other hand, I really like my current working dynamics because I get to be part of both analyzing and gathering requirements as well as being part of shaping the solution.

A day in my life

Previously when being staffed in Stockholm, I often commuted bi-weekly from Gothenburg which was great fun as I got the best of two cities. Right now, my client is located in my hometown but due to the pandemic, we work completely remote.

My day usually starts with a daily stand-up where our team sync about current progress and identify potential blockers, then there is a daily review meeting with all teams for quality assurance of new features or changes being deployed to the Salesforce platform. Then I work on my assigned stories for the current sprint which can be anything from configuring features in the interface, interviewing the client’s staff or improving project documentation.

What I personally really enjoy about working at Accenture is many IF activities. My favorite memory is when I got the opportunity to sail a 50 foot sailboat in Stockholm for an evening which IF Sailing arranged by renting this boat, a very pedagogic skipper and instructor, making it possible for both non-sailors as well as transatlantic pros to experience the beautiful archipelago of Stockholm together.

I also enjoy the continuous learning opportunities at Accenture as there are often possibilities for learning new skills or acquiring professional certificates. A fantastic experience I had was the analyst school outside of London a year after I started where analysts from all over Europe gathered in teams to sharpen our business communication, analyzing skills, and technology proficiency as well as having a really fun time making new friends within the company.

The two things I am the most passionate about are music and outdoors activities. So in my spare time, I really like to have jam sessions with my friends and play music, be it a smooth indie rock groove or a deep electronica/techno vibe. Experiencing the ocean by sailing, having a few drinks at sunset in the archipelago of Gothenburg, or hiking up summits in the fells in the north is also a fantastic feeling that I gladly spend time and money on when I get the opportunity.

My advice

I would recommend trying to find an edge, find a product or system you think is extra interesting and start learning that either on your own or through learning possibilities with Accenture as this can be your guiding star when choosing what projects to take on.

I also think that it is really valuable to find activities to stimulate you outside the project as there are many many options to choose from. During my time at Accenture so far, I have been part of work fairs to recruit students, hosted seminars with our business partner West Pride through Accenture Pride to increase inclusion and awareness, sports events, and game nights.
