What will be your role?
Society is moving towards greater digitalisation, but many organisations do not know how to adapt their strategy in response to remain competitive in the future. To meet the growing demand for strategic support for digital innovation processes in the ICT domain, we are seeking to expand our team.
As an ICT consultant with the Strategic Business Analysis expertise group, you provide clients with expert advice on ICT-related innovations. You do this for government and industry, individual companies, networks and chains. To help our clients navigate complex digital transformations, you work on areas such as market research, technology radars, vision and strategy development, development or validation of (new) business models and roadmaps. You do this for diverse domains, such as the manufacturing, digital media, agro-food, telecom, internet and mobility industries. As the face of TNO to our clients, you ensure that the advice is tailored to their needs, and that it is effectively communicated and received.
In our projects, you are the link between technology, the market, the client and our internal organisation. Typical activities include liaising with the client, preparing plans and planning, and conducting research, workshops and/or interviews to gather data for analysis and formulate your advice.
