People running businesses can be so caught up in the day-today decisions that they can lose sight of the big picture. That's where management analysts come in. They identify problems and offer solutions to help managers run their companies as efficiently and effectively as possible.
For example, management analysts may look at how the company is organized. They may help set-up new systems. They also might prepare operations and procedures manuals and train employees. Some large companies have management analysts on staff. Other analysts work as consultants. Usually this is an office job with predictable hours. But when travel is required, or when important reports are due, the work week can expand and intensify.
Depending on the position , training requirements can range from college business courses, to a master's degree and years of experience in the field. This is a career for people with strong problem solving and communication skills and a keen appreciation of the beauty of a well-run business.
