Manager

Management Consulting Philadelphia or Wayne, Pennsylvania

Description

Defining strategies is at the heart of what we do, but implementing those strategies is where we excel. Laser-focused on delivering measurable, sustainable impact, we roll up our sleeves to work shoulder-to- shoulder in tight, hybrid teams with our clients. Year after year, this approach has created a bond – and the trust – to enable the mindset shift that frees leaders and teams to think smarter and work better: with each other, with customers, and with outside partners.

Our work centers on driving transformational change programs related to operating model shifts, customer experience delivery, merger integration, and large-scale digital and technology investments.

There is something about this place, and we can’t wait for you to be a part of it. â€‹Here's what you need to know:

  1. Our core values don’t come from a Harvard Business School case study.
  2. What gets us out of bed in the morning is our belief in our clients and their ability to deliver more and better, transforming their businesses in the process. Yes, with our help.
  3. Our glass is half full. We all have our strengths, and we play to them.
  4. Cookie-cutter is not in our vocabulary.
  5. Our teams are small and mighty. You will always have a seat at the table with clients.
  6. There are no “specialty tracks” here. And that’s intentional.
  7. We believe everyone has a role to play in growing our business.
  8. We believe in family.
  9. Travel is good. But we’d like most of your travel to be for fun, not for work.
  10. The proof is in the pudding. Most of our clients are $1billion companies who choose Navigate, repeatedly.
