Then you might be exactly who we look for as part of our Digital Strategy team.
In the Nordic Digital Strategy team at Cognizant Consulting, we have the dynamic and entrepreneurial freedom of a small organization, yet the professionalism and long-
term sustainability of a large organization. We are a small Nordic practice with aggressive growth ambitions. As we belong to a Fortune 500 company with $16 billion in annual revenues, we have the know-
how and financial strength to compete for and win the biggest client contracts in the region, as well as use acquisitions to accelerate growth.
We have high ambitions to build a digital consulting practice from the outset, as we leverage our capabilities to become the leading Nordic Digital Strategy firm and unleash digital potential for human benefit to help clients accelerate from strategy-to-outcome at scale.
About the role
As an Associate Director in Digital Strategy Norway, you will collaborate with country leaders, industry leaders and client partners to help grow Cognizant’s Digital Strategy business with existing and new clients.
By defining scope, approach, team and commercials in client engagements, you take accountability for time, quality, profitability and team performance in projects, primarily in your country’s local focus industries.
You should bring best practices from working extensively with strategy and / or transformation and be ready to lead and take responsibility for strategic engagements.
You will play a key role in leading and managing complex end-to-end projects orchestrating the end-to-end capabilities of Cognizant to create a compelling client experience.

Professionally, you have a university degree in business administration, engineering or a related field. You have extensive, hands-
on management consulting experience with deep advisory and end-to-end digital strategy and transformation skills, which allows you to work side-
by-side with our clients using collaborative methods such as design thinking and agile, as well as business strategy, human science, data science, technology architecture, software development to co-
create deliverables and more importantly, accelerate client outcomes. You are used to working with global and regional clients on an executive level, holding a strong track record of delivering strategy definition and / or digital transformation programs across industry sectors and in different client contexts.

Personally, you have strong interpersonal and leadership skills and an entrepreneurial mindset, as you like to creatively explore and contribute to opportunities for doing things better.
