The Lean Specialist is a professional in the early stages of their career who seeks development as a consultant and will possess relevant industry, subject matter or academic experience. You should have the desire to work in a consulting environment with the goal of progressing to a consultant role. You will be asked to work and communicate with all levels of an organization, primarily from director down to line-level positions. Occasional exposure to executives may be required in select circumstances.
You may work on an independent basis, but will primarily support consultant led projects by supplying analytical analysis while learning the business and culture of the company. Your work may also include involvement in multiple project work streams, small engagement teams or components of larger, more complex engagements.
You will primarily interface with project leadership and other consultants, with occasional exposure to company leadership. As a member of the Continuous Improvement department, you will display the capacity and desire for professional continuous improvement and growth.
This position also requires the ability to deal with uncertainty in a changing environment, often with little or no direction.
Leveraging a hypothesis-driven approach and detailed analysis, you will help to derive solutions that will be captured within an effective storyline. Problem and conflict resolution and negotiation ability are developing skills.
The projects that you work on will be complex, cross-functional engagements with a variety of possible outcomes to be evaluated for effectiveness. The subject matter of projects can be very broad, from those that require in-depth data analysis, to those that address corporate structure, direction or policy. Examples include: process cost identification, future-state design, organizational re-structuring, administrative cost reduction, and process efficiency.
You will also be responsible for participating in development and delivery of select components of succinct and insightful presentations to company leadership. The opportunity to interact with company leadership will provide you with emerging insight into company challenges and opportunities as well as in the larger health care and insurance industry.
As a Lean Specialist, your responsibilities will include managing your own work and deliverables, and performing rigorous analysis from which meaningful insights can be developed. You may develop plans relevant to your own work and coordinate project activities with other teammates. You may participate in formulation of both tactical and strategic recommendations for business improvement.
