Practice Area Profile

What You'll Do

At BCG Platinion we're keen to engage with experienced, passionate and creative Product Owners that will help us unlock our client’s digital potential and ignite change. Meaningful work is at the core of everything we do. We build unique solutions to the complexities our clients face while providing our people with opportunities to explore and grow. A community of leading experts, BCG Platinion team members have a natural springboard for professional growth and deeper opportunities to excel.

As a Product Principal at BCG Platinion you will work on some of the most interesting business challenges across industries.

You will work closely with clients and collaborate with fellow BCGers to:

• Define (e.g. client change transformations from process- to product-led and define what to build what value it would bring)

• Develop (e.g. MVPs and pilot product squads)

• Enable (e.g. coaching product squads and leadership)

• Lead (e.g. manage Platinion case teams)

For clients seeking to undergoing change transformations you will be consulting and advising clients on how to shift from being process-led to product-led. You will shape define how product fits and operates within the new client organisation.

You’ll lead teams to conceptualize innovative product solutions to complex business problems. This will involve organising & facilitating ideation and incubation sessions to uncover creative and disruptive digital solutions. This will result in providing the client with an actionable roadmap for the client to execute themselves or up to MVP collaboratively with BCG.

For clients seeking support to build and deliver, you will lead delivery teams in building a range of products & services that could include responsive digital apps, APIs and data solutions to drive digital transformation projects.

A key part of this will be taking ownership of business outcomes, product vision, prioritisation, product backlogs (complete ownership or partnering with client Product Owner), eliciting requirements from key stakeholders and developing user journeys and roadmaps. Following product deployment and adoption you will encourage continuous improvement among your stakeholders

You will lead and drive the Digital Product and Services functions end-to-end (establish culture, establish sustainable pace for team's work, maintain pipeline of products and projects, ensure on-time and on-budget delivery of product and projects, partner with Design, Engineering, and Architect teams and provide weekly status reports).

For clients seeking to build capabilities you will work alongside the client team coaching both their product teams and leadership on how to instil and sustain product thinking for high value delivery. This is as much around the techniques for product design and delivery as it is around the culture and mind-set required within an organisation for those techniques to be successful.

In your role you will represent the interface between Platinion and Core BCG as well as the key point of contact for client stakeholder management. You will also manage Platinion case teams and be accountable for the outcomes and responsible for enabling the team.

You will be expected to provide team members with clear structure and support as well as managing their career development. A strong grasp of agile principles and methodology is essential, as well as the ability to adapt it to the case environment
