If you’re searching for meaning in your work, how about making sure that a world-class medical center shares its information and workflows properly so that nobody dies? With that much at stake, our client is looking for a truly top-notch business analyst whose understanding of enterprise applications is unmatched, and who is also a gifted listener who can translate stakeholder need into first-rate products. If you happen to fit that description, please rise.
You’ll be mapping and building the inward-facing systems of the medical center, ensuring that faculty, staff and doctors are communicating, sharing resources and managing processes in the most efficient ways possible. And that won’t just mean maintaining existing systems, but rather engaging head-on in the complex and challenging task of creating new processes and products from scratch. That, of course, entails face-to-face interactions with the various stakeholders –department chairs, researchers, senior members of medical teams–to understand their roles and the tools they’ve never thought of that will help them be better at their jobs.
Hired Gun Profile
You’ve been enjoying greater and greater responsibility in business-analyst roles for years now – if in the medical field, great, but that’s no deal-breaker –and are ready to step into an even larger pair of shoes. You are eminently comfortable with a host of relevant software applications and methodologies, such as Agile, PeopleSoft, SharePoint, HCM and Oracle Access Manager. But on top of that, you’re a true systems thinker, with an honest-to-God knack for the giant infernal jigsaw puzzle that a huge medical center’s systems comprise. Furthermore, you’re not cut out to hunker down in a cubicle and think thoughts; you’re a communicator who enjoys roaming the hallways, talking to people about their jobs and incorporating what they tell you into that vast complicated map you carry around in your brain.
Don’t overemphasize your software chops at the expense of your ability to truly “think systems.” Be ready to tell this employer some good true stories about times when you’ve created something new and pretty after listening to users articulate their needs.
If you’re ready to shoulder some real responsibility, putting to use your talent for managing complex processes, creating sharp software tools, and interfacing meaningfully with diverse professionals in a prestigious institution, this gig is a career-maker.
