“On an enjoyable day, you have an interesting meeting with the CFO, during which you come up with many new ideas. You also spend a lot of time generating new insights.”
“On a less enjoyable day, the management team asks you a lot of ad hoc questions. As a result, you don’t have much time left to work on your other tasks.”
“The CEO and the CFO have a strategic issue: what is the influence of price increases on the purchase volumes of the fencing? How do you proceed?”
First of all, you schedule a meeting with the CEO and the CFO to brainstorm and discuss the exact question. After that, you start working with Excel and PowerBI. Huge amounts of data can be found in the data warehouse, so you try things out and decide which analysis provides the best insights to answer the question. You present your results in PowerBI, Excel or PowerPoint and discuss the next steps with the CEO and the CFO.
You determine your growth within the company yourself by defining your own projects and ambitions. ZND Group supports training and courses, and sharing knowledge is very important among employees.
