Operations Consulting - Where to next?

 
#1 Operations Consulting - Where to next?

I currently work in Operations Consulting (Lean 6, business improvement e.t.c) and have been in this area for 2 yrs since graduating. Who are the other main players in this space? If I wanted to move in Strat Consulting for Private Equity for a complete change what options are open to me.

The move from ops mgt ( hardcore ops such as 6 sigma, etc) to strategic consulting ( and that too PE) aint gonna be easy!! Really have to show skill transferrability. How can your ops mgt skills be useful in a strategic capacity in PE? This is what you have to come up with and sell this like crazy.

Youe easiest route may be to just do an MBA , focus on strategy and finance in school and try to get a jon in PE strategy upon graduation.

Note that PE is notoriously tough to get into ...its an old boys network and they rarely advertize jobs, even to recruiters. They fill positions based on word of mouth, and who knows who...try and get into this circle!!You gotta know the right ppl.

Also note that to get into strategy in PE, you almost definately need to goto a top business school. If you dont, your chances are severely limited , unless of course, you know ppl, very influential ppl.

Thanks for your comments Johnny. Any other suggestions on this? Has anyone made the move from Ops to Strategic Consulting? Surely having knowledge of how a strategy can actually be implemented is a good skill set in itself to be in Strat?

yeah, and i think thats how you have to sell it.. your string suit will be the ability of knowing ( and experiencing) how companies are run - how strategy is implemented.

PE dont just do strategy, they need to have assurances ( before they invest their money), that the company will operate successfully. This is where your nich comes in- you know ( baswed on your prev experiences) how this is done ( via best practices such as 6 sigma). This is your selling point.
