What does an Account Strategist do?

Strategists use their analytical skills to evaluate an organization’s operations, including the internal structure and business process. Strategists consider information technology infrastructure as well. After assessing, they make suggestions to develop methods to improve current systems and streamline operations to enhance a customer's experience and increase revenue.

Strategists work within a corporation to find ways to foster and encourage cooperation between departments to ensure that teams are in alignment. They consider market trends that keep the company competitive with peers and oversee its risk management strategies. Strategists also consult with management to examine and determine if there are any gaps and brainstorm ways to improve gaps and service offerings. Sometimes, they will meet with vendors if negotiations impact new product development. Strategists need a bachelor's degree in business management or related fields.
