@MBB. We all know that you work on strategy projects. Can someone provide insight /examples of the work? Getting sick of PMO and thinking about trying to make a change.

They do PMO too, and if you got hired there that's probably what you would end up doing also (not the strategy work)

Interesting that everyone else likes to speak for us.... lol. Haven't done a PMO case yet after three years. Strategy is just as broad a term as implementation. It really varies. In the past few cases I have done customer segmentation strategy, customer journey strategy followed by a journey re-design, and go-to-market case. I tend to do more marketing/sales/pricing/front of the house strategy. This is likely very different experience than a peer who is more on the corp dev or operational side of strategy.

I have done lots of operational transformation work (i.e. let's change how we do things to realize big productivity and cost savings) super operational, been to some amazing places around the world, and it's challenging (and rewarding). Haven't done PMO, but we do sell that kinda work when our clients ask for it

Plenty of PMO at MBB

Arrow Icon

You will forever do PMO once you do too much of it.

LoL love folks speaking for us in the earlier comments. Zero PMO in my career. Examples of work: Buy/ No Buy of several niche firms for diff clients, growth strategy for fortune 50, private equity portfolio sell offs, spins offs, tunraround strategies and more

MBB doesn't understand strategic design strategy nor how to deploy it. It always ends up bastardized into the hypothesis-driven approach. Prove me wrong.
