I’ve performed many different roles across a variety of projects and clients. I’ve been a business analyst for the Accenture blockchain-powered Procure-to-Pay platform, a solution that simplifies how companies can buy and sell goods, send and receive payments, and secure financing.
My most exciting project to date was when I was a business analyst for the Accenture blockchain-powered letter of guarantee platform for banking clients. We had to find the most effective structure for our workshops so that they could fit both the client’s system requirements and Accenture frameworks. Even though ideating with creativity while adhering to the project schemes was particularly challenging in this case, the result was gratifying as the outcome of our efforts went far beyond our client’s expectations.
I credit the success of the projects I’ve handled to the working style I try to establish within every project team I’m assigned. I like giving each member a clear role, for which he or she is encouraged to take responsibility and ownership. This way, everyone understands that their work is vital to the project.
I also insist on open and honest communication, so that everyone has access to all the information needed for proper execution. I employ a collaborative teamwork model, where every member is considered a leader who has something valuable to bring to the table, as I’ve found it is the most powerful way to approach the fulfillment of any project.
One way in which Accenture has changed my life was by helping me discover and cultivate my presentation skills. My managers here have trained me in the fundamentals of strong presentation, such as knowing my audience, structuring and tailoring my materials, and featuring key messages.
What I like the most about Accenture is the combination of the people, the work and the personal progress that I feel I make every single day I spend here.
Because my work week is brimming with activity, I make sure to reserve my spare time for rest and relaxation. On weekends and days off, you’ll find me either working out, watching a movie or heading out for a quick beach trip with my loved ones.
