Strategy without implementation knowledge, is like having a 9" di** but suffering from ED.

Sure, go for it! If nothing else, it'll make you appreciate the strategy projects more 🤣

Why does implementation get a bad reputation? Just curious. It can’t hurt to have another skill

like

Of a project. Implementing adobe marketing cloud. I know implementation gets a bad reputation, but could it be worth it to actually learn a platform that is valuable in marketing and gain a hard skill

Without implementation strategy doesn’t mean anything. It’s totally under appreciated in this industry.

I would like to learn something like that- Yea do it!

There are skills that are kind of in between - try things like learning Agile.

Adobe Marketing Cloud is an interesting implementation and you’ll wear a strategy, CX/UX, and Product owner hat during the implementation

Implementation will take a lot out of ya, but you will for sure appreciate strategy more. I think it makes sense to do a couple, so you know what client has to go through when you recommend a transformation as part of a strategy assessment. I find that it helps me be more realistic as well as connect with more tactical stakeholders and understand how the organization really works

Does anyone have knowledge of the financial crimes practice in KPMG? I am interviewing for a position to move there from a current forensics position. The KPMG recruiter explained that its an extremely small practice and I wouldn't be doing a lot of the "grunt" work any more like clearing alerts in AML etc. I was wondering if anyone could shed some light on what this practice really does? Online info is not that descriptive. Also, is the 80-100 percent travel really true or is a bit less?
