Position Summary

Deloitte US Easier to Do Business, Hybrid Operate Project Manager

Easier to Do Business: Deloitte established the Easier to Do Business (Easier) program to simplify the contracting process, strengthen client relationships and enhance opportunities and revenues. Contracting and negotiating can often be a complicated and time-consuming process. But it doesn’t have to be.

Part of Deloitte’s growth strategy is the development of “Hybrid Operate” businesses that combine Deloitte’s market leading professional services with IP-based products (e.g., data, analytics, or software). Deloitte is establishing a standardized approach and governance process for Hybrid Operate offerings in order to manage risk, promote compliance, and reduce contracting inefficiencies. Easier will manage the contracting process, coordinate stakeholders, monitor progress against key performance indicators, and support the development of best practices. It is also the primary link between Hybrid Operate offering teams, teams dealing with each individual client negotiation, Hybrid Operate leaders, and Hybrid Operate specialists.
