Bench and Mark 2 - Career Planning

Recommended Posts

Not sure if Mark is on the Mark this time.


It is relatively easier for a BB and/or MBB to switch domains basis their knowledge in business improvement methodologies, however, companies tend to prefer BB / MBBs who have specific domain knowledge as well.


Only if companies followed Mark's view.....what say?

I do see some companies asking for domain specific knowledge.


Our experience has been largely different. Majority of the global leaders that we have worked with were our first client in that sector. This has happened in several domains - here are a few - FMCG, Shoes, Aircraft, Starch, Soft Drinks, Liquor, Web Search, e-commerce, Fintech, Navigation, and Real Estate Management Services.  


I have seen hundreds of professionals shifting to highly unrelated sectors, for example, Telecom to Hospitality, Manufacturing to IT, Banking to IT, ITES to Banking and so on.

This is quite interesting to debate. Companies often ask for relevant experience and there by chose the candidate appropriately. If we hop the verticals and horizontals, then its challenging to accept us in the organization. companies don't need generalized specialist, rather specialized generalist are required for the business benefits.
