Posted on: February 25, 2021

Job Description:

Anaplan, the Connected Planning pioneer, is changing the way the world's most respected companies do business. We believe in clear, open communication enabling teams to overcome obstacles and move forward together. We want you to feel that you belong to a team, you matter, and are able to be your authentic self. We all work together to deliver business value with the power of Connected Planning at every level within every organization, and alongside an ever-growing number of users, a rich partner ecosystem, and active community. At Anaplan, our values are key to everything we do. We call it #AnaplanLOVE At Anaplan these words come to life by making employees feel empowered and inspired. Building a strong culture around company values is an ongoing journey that will continue to be the core of our existence. Are you a highly talented business consultant in the technology space with a yearning to change the way people plan? Do you enjoy diving into issues and crafting solutions? Are you detail-oriented yet able to communicate at a high level? Do you enjoy knowing that your work has significantly improved your client's life? Then this job is for you. Core Responsibilities: In this role, you will drive and lead customer resources to assess, design, build, and deliver commercially viable Anaplan planning and analytics solutions. Your role will be to lead a portfolio of Anaplan customers and ensure their continual success. Your first order of business with a new client is to ensure a smooth and rapid first implementation in line with the processes the customer wants to run inside the Anaplan Platform. You'll be someone who is not afraid to advise a company in Sales Operations one day, then HR the next. Anaplan's Platform is diverse across multiple use cases and industries. We truly go across the entire business so you'll need to be flexible and have at least a decent knowledge of the business process. It means you need to take all your experience in business process, technology, and client management and combine them to guide and handle the customer to an appropriate solution. It sometimes means you need to re-direct a customer in the most tactful way possible in order for them to have a smooth first implementation. You also need to 'teach the customer to fish'. It means you need to make them self-sufficient so that they can expand beyond their first process in Anaplan and quickly make Anaplan their spine of decision making in the business. You also need to build your village and establish a set of resources that can help you make the portfolio of customers you are responsible for, successful. That means you need to establish strong ties to your local partner ecosystem, as well as ties to internal resources that can help you make your customers successful. This will include forging links with Executives, Product Management, Engineering, and Support, to name just a few. You'll need to be a mover and a shaker and someone who can influence people to get things done. This entails:

  • Ability to model build on the Anaplan Platform to a sophisticated level
  • Ability to craft not just an Anaplan solution but take into account the wider technology solution and ecosystem
  • Ability to manage the client, support them on the best way to translate their business process into Anaplan and ultimately be able to guide the customer to success using previous best practices and ensuring we make the customer successful
  • Understanding clients' financial and operational management processes and redefining them into Business Requirements, then user stories then to multi-dimensional technologies.
  • Understanding how to translate what they want to do into Anaplan, not just taking an existing poor process done in XL or other tool and re-creating it in Anaplan
  • Reviewing use cases and conceiving and executing proof-of-concept models.
  • Managing numerous projects simultaneously, adhering to SOW's, Project Milestones, etc.
  • Executing work plans in global time zones, both on-site or remote
  • You'll also take a sophisticated issue and break it down into simple, manageable steps or achievements Common Traits of an Anaplan Business Partner:
    • Resilience
    • Calmness
    • Methodical
    • Eloquent
    • Active listener Requirements:
      • An advanced degree, such as a Master of Business Administration (MBA) with a specialization in consulting
      • 10+ years of business consulting/implementation experience with multi-dimensional systems such as Cognos, Hyperion, Business Objects, TM1, etc. or spreadsheets
      • Strong client-facing skills and a successful track record of engagement management
      • Domain expertise in financial or operational management systems, including financial modeling expertise
      • Ability to translate from model-building in Excel to multi-dimensional technologies.
      • Solid understanding of data integration (inbound and outbound)
      • In-depth knowledge of at least 2 industry verticals (e.g. Pharma, Finance, Energy, etc.) strongly preferred. Do you align with Anaplan's Values?
