Advisory managers guide and advise clients through a wide range of processes related to business planning, operational evaluations and assessments, and major decision making. The priority is usually to help identify opportunities to increase revenue or improve efficiency. They may construct or develop models and simulations to predict likely outcomes for various potential scenarios. These managers often specialize in one particular aspect of business operations, such as technology, personnel, or finances.
Advisory managers typically have a bachelor’s degree and a background that includes supervisory roles. They must have extensive experience in their particular specialty area and have often worked as a specialist or consultant in that category. Managers in a financially focused role may have mandated requirements depending on the position and location. These positions require excellent communication skills, project management abilities, and familiarity with a broad range of business operation situations and challenges.
