Arushi Tewari, Senior Consultant, tells us about her role in Agilisys’s Business Change Practice.
What is your role within Agilisys?
As a Senior Consultant within Agilisys’s Business Change Practice, my role involves a diverse range of activities – like gathering requirements, leading design workshops, writing business cases, and developing and implementing workable solutions for our clients.
In addition to project work, I am an active participant of the BAME and Agilisys Women’s Empowerment (AWE) networks, driving diversity and inclusion within the organisation.
What does a typical day look like?
Consulting and travel go hand-in-hand. Before the pandemic, I would commute to client sites about 70% of the time, which could be anywhere in the UK or in London, where I am based.
My day-to-day work depends on which phase of the project I am working on. For example, during the design phase of a project, a typical day would involve preparing and running interactive workshops with the client to develop a solution that is fit for purpose.
Tell us about your team in the Business Change Practice
The Business Change team is supportive, fun and inspirational to work with. We have people from a wide array of backgrounds, ranging from people who have been in consulting throughout their professional careers to people with army or nursing backgrounds.
The team has grown closer and stronger during the pandemic, we have regular team meetings, coffee catch ups and a variety of socials like quizzes, fancy dress competitions and even bingo nights – all virtual!
How did you get to where you are now?
I joined Agilisys as an intern, fresh out of university after completing a degree in engineering. Over the past three years, I have gained a wealth of knowledge and experience working with my colleagues and clients on different projects. Since then, I have been promoted thrice to my current position.
