Help! Applying to a job and one of the only real requirement is to show how I’m “adept at understanding client needs, and designing and implementing creative solutions”. My issue is I work in risk advisory and most of our client engagements don’t actually involve implementation. We usually present our findings and recommendations and move on. What’s the best way I can tackle this? I’m coming up blank and the deadline is soon.

For you to be able to present findings and recommendations, you must obviously understand the needs/requirements, and that leads to the implementation of whatever solutions are required. So, outline your experience citing your ability to translate business needs into a gap assessment

like

Typically gap assessments may also be accompanied with a high level road map that includes implementation activities and milestones. You can mention that as well.
