What does a Strategy Analyst do?
Strategy analysts rely on data to solve everyday business problems. They provide relevant insights that help companies make better decisions, address key challenges and concerns, and identify new ways to grow. Strategy analysts identify a business’ needs and develop plans that determine the direction a company can take to actualize its goals. They gather, review, and test data and apply many measures to provide solutions to critical business issues and decisions. They address business problems with a long-term view, but when necessary, they assist in the short-term.
Strategy analysts sometimes develop pricing strategies and models, identify possible new growth initiatives, and build a pipeline of opportunities for partnerships. They work closely with product, sales, and business development teams to increase market share. They identify the business or organization’s needs and develop plans to guide and determine the direction to actualize its goals. They provide, communicate, and implement strategies to address competition and need a minimum bachelor's degree in business administration or related fields.
