The Specialist Executive is aligned with Client Alignment Executives and Cloud solutions specialists to develop technology strategies, roadmaps, and transformation plans. Primary responsibilities include understanding and quantifying the prospective client's baseline technology portfolio, influencing the account teams' technology portfolio planning activities to achieve year-over-year increases in Deloitte Cloud share of wallet, and strategizing with other Deloitte offering portfolio organizations across all Business Units/Service Lines to address the client's transformational (multi-year) business/technology challenges.
The Specialist Executive requires an understanding of the client's business and technology strategies, aligns current and future joint solutions to those strategies, and advocates client needs/interests within Deloitte Cloud portfolio planning activities. Strong business and IT strategy and planning skills, the ability to influence software and service executives, and develop long lasting relationships as a trusted technical advisor are a must. The Specialist Executive is focused on supporting business development, while also having strong operational ties to support, standards, strategy, and product management, but is not a delivery leadership position.
