Manager - Business Transformation - Orphoz

  • Amsterdam

Who You'll Work With

You will be based in our McKinsey office in Amsterdam, as part of Orphoz, a subsidiary of McKinsey & Company, working closely and in partnership with client's senior management and their specialist departments.
At Orphoz, we aspire to help our clients to achieve one of their biggest challenges: make their transformation plans really happen. Our day-to-day work is to support large companies and public entities who need to adapt their operating models to the accelerated changes in their environment, by combining agility, sustainable efficiency, and employee engagement. All in all, we exist to deliver a lasting impact to our clients. 
At Orphoz, you can expect a uniquely varied and exciting working environment, as well as the opportunity to work with a talented and dynamic growing team. 
Do you know that only 1/3 of transformations are successful and sustainable? Orphoz helps leading private sector organisations execute business transformation programs in a time of accelerated change. The business transformation includes organisational structure, capability building, and service redesign. We turn strategy into practice, using agile, efficient, and highly engaging methods that work on the ground rather than just looking good on paper. Orphoz integrates the skills, the approach, the corporate culture, and the resources that lead to the success of complex and challenging transformation projects and is ideally positioned to smoothly implement strategies designed by McKinsey & Company.
We plan and deliver change projects together with our clients, helping them capture their full potential. We know what determines the success of large projects and what can ensure lasting implementation success. We work closely and in partnership with our client's senior management and specialist functions. We combine strategic and operational project management, with strong execution skills and an understanding of the specific demands of each industry. We measure our success by achieving the goals we set together with our clients.

What You'll Do

You will work largely in the private sector and concentrate on business change management. 
You will lead on transformation projects by engaging at a deep level across our clients’ businesses, working in teams to build the capabilities, systems, and processes needed to deliver bottom-line results and then ensure those results will be sustained. 
In this role, you will lead, coach, and motivate your team of consultants and client employees in each project. You will contribute to the implementation of Orphoz’s growth strategy as well as take responsibility for the development of the firm.
