Tech consulting to strategy as an experienced hire?

Hi All,

I have a question on how to switch from tech (ERP consulting) to strategy (Management consulting) as an experienced hire.

I have close to 5 years of experience in Oracle Consulting and mostly working on implementation projects as a functional consultant. I am currently working at the one of the Big4 and try to get myself in strategy side of the house but I find it hard to transfer from Oracle service line to Strategy internally. Since I already did my Master's, I can't go back to school again to do MBA anytime soon and apply fresh to MBB.

What are your recommendations to do this transition? How can I get myself to MBB from Big 4 Tech consulting? Should I do it asap or later in my career when promoted to manager level in Oracle consulting?

​Thank you!

Hi,

  • With 5 years of experience in tech consulting, you can apply directly to Mck / BCG digital teams.
  • You don't need an MBA since it will not be a career transition (you are already a consultant in that sense) and you have enough years of experience.
  • Manager role is nice to have but not mandatory as well (since you'll be most probably downgraded to the consultant anyway)

The strong success of this line has caused Duraflex’s management to re-evaluate their position in work boots. With limited additional resources, the management must now decide if they should focus their efforts on competing with Badger in the work boot sector, or allocate their resources on further strengthening their position with casual boots. The management team approached you and asked for your advice. In order to advise them on their future work boot strategy please prepare first some insights regarding market size and competitive landscape.
