  1. Research and content development,
  2. Understanding the evolving market
  3. Shaping propositions to reflect client needs
  4. Communicating the opportunity and value associated with enterprise agility within NTT DATA (EMEA) 
  5. Strengthening NTT DATA’s inter-opco community of EA specialists
  6. Engaging with clients in either pre-sales or advisory roles
  7. Nurturing and mentoring staff within the enterprise agility practice

Excellent communication and written skills are vital.  Our expectation is you are able to produce high quality original content with the potential for publication.

  1. To create best-in-class propositions that define how different clients and industries should manage technical development and delivery
  2. To support business development in creating and delivering proposals to new and existing clients
  3. To create re-usable assets from the development delivery work we have undertaken in the UK and EMEA
  4. To work with our other practices to share our experience and grow our footprint through collaboration
  5. To manage a team of consultants on an ad hoc basis for content creation and account support
