McChrystal Group - Remote (30+ days ago)

McChrystal Group is an elite advisory services and leadership development firm composed of a diverse mix of professionals from the military, academic, business, and intelligence sectors who specialize in preparing clients for success in a complex environment by transforming organizations into cohesive, adaptable “teams of teams.”

By partnering with leaders who are driven to make change a reality, we enable meaningful and sustainable business performance improvements. Overall, we are distinctively focused on improving our client’s ability to perform their mission – not on doing it for them. To that end, we help shape organizational functionality and culture through a set of principles, proven processes, and leadership behaviors that are sustainable long after we leave. Ultimately, we aim to improve the performance of organizations and develop the men and women who lead them. We act as trusted advisors, partnering with our clients to solve their greatest business challenges.

Our proven track record in execution allows us to accelerate value creation for any type of organization; at McChrystal Group, we place clients at the center of all we do.

McChrystal Group is looking for a Research Analyst (RA) to join its Discovery team. Team Discovery functions as the analytic subject matter expert arm of the McChrystal Group, charged with rapidly analyzing and understanding organizational behavior, processes and leadership opportunities when partnering with clients. The RA delivers applied analytic support for client projects and advises assigned Advisory Services teams in study design, interpretation of results and network analysis. The RA serves as a Team Discovery contact for assigned Advisory Services teams; has a basic knowledge of McChrystal Group assessment products, methods, measures, and proprietary analytic models; and is qualified to apply and explain these tools in their common applications. The RA will work cross-functionally to plan and execute special projects; to generalize our learning about leadership solutions; and to improve our methods, measures, and related business processes.
