Moving to Strategy
I have been working withStrategy and Operations for a year now. I want to make a move to strategy as the technology related projects are not driving my motivation. I am PMP certified and went through a core banking transformation and another PMO establishment project so now I am labelled with implementations and PMOs (very very boring). My experience prior to joining Deloitte was in a company I founded myself and ran for 2.5 years (still active and running, just a dispute with my partner over the next 5 years vision and I decided to leave)
I want to move to strategy (weather in consulting or in the industry), by strategy i dont mean feasibility studies (also very boring). I mean everything else.
My questions are the following:
1. Do i need any sort of finance background? I am an engineer (Industrial) with no real finance background
2. Do i move to strategy arms of consulting or industry? share your experiences please :)
3. If i do need a solid finance base, what do you recommend? CFA level 1? just general knowledge? get experience with finance?
Anything other input is highly appreciate it and I thank everyone in advance for your help.
