Director of Analysis
Over the past 30 years, DeWolff, Boberg & Associates (DB&A) has focused our efforts on empowering managers. From the start, this “people-first” approach has helped drive lasting financial and operational improvements in numerous companies across a wealth of industries. As a company, we have endured economic, political, technological and cultural change but the roots of this basic principle have grown even deeper within our company. DB&A remains steadfast in the philosophy that gave us our start which is to help leaders reach their greatest potential.
Overview of the DB&A Organization and Process
DB&A consists of 3 distinct teams. There is a Sales Team, an Analysis Team, and an Operations Team. In a very simplified view, the Sales team is responsible for meeting potential clients and getting them to understand the value of our services. Once a client sees DB&A as a potential partner, the Analysis Team is brought in to serve as an extended Sales team to set up projects for the Operations Team. The job of the Analysis Team is to demonstrate the ability to transform management cultures and to successfully deliver on commitments with guaranteed results. If a client is satisfied with the transformation proposal presented by the Analysis Team, the Operations Team will then begin to execute the transformation process over the course of a 6-month project engagement.
Analysis Team Overview
The core Analysis Team for each engagement is comprised of the Director of Analysis (DOA) and the Analysis Manager (AM). The extended Analysis team also includes a Chief of Operations, a Project Manager and Management Consultants of varying levels. The Director of Analysis is ultimately responsible for the outcome of the Analysis and devotes a great deal of time strategizing and providing daily engagement with the client to earn a “go-ahead” for project engagement.
