Experienced Project Analyst, PPK Transformation
WHO WE ARE
Bain & Company is a leading global consulting firm, serving clients from offices in all major cities. We work with top executives to help them make better decisions, convert those decisions to actions and deliver the sustainable success they desire. We are passionate about achieving results for our clients (our public clients have historically outperformed the stock market 4:1).
Bain’s Product, Practice & Knowledge (PPK) department has played a vital role in harnessing the best of our consulting staffs’ individual and collective expertise for over 20 years. Within PPK, each practice supports teams across the globe with deep expertise and knowledge. Our practices play a critical role in Bain’s commercial success and are a key strategic priority.
PPK is undergoing a transformation focused on creating a stronger, more scalable, efficient and effective PPK organization aligned with Bain’s evolving operating model (product leaders, deeper expertise, increased partnerships). We will achieve this by:
(1) redefining the operating model and improving processes to enable more time to deepen expertise and
(2) freeing-up time for PPK teams to provide more and better front line support to client teams. PPK is growing rapidly and roles are becoming increasingly more fragmented.
Over the course of the next few years, the PPK Transformation team will be redefining the operating model, redesigning key processes through test and learn pilots, and streamlining existing processes through center-led efforts. Your role is a critical component to supporting these goals.
