Your challenge

Are you a highly talented strategist? Are you ready for new challenges? Can you bring together the right balance of problem solving rigor, people skills, and pragmatism to turn your thinking into decisions and actions? This is a unique opportunity to drive strategy and growth in a leading HealthTech company. As a Director in the Strategy team, you will initiate and drive strategic projects, and help the Philips Executive Committee and senior leaders make key decisions.

This is an opportunity to really impact, and become part of the future leadership pool, for a EUR 24 billion company, making over EUR 2.2 billion of profit in 2015.

 

Your team

The Strategy team works together with Philips Businesses, Markets and other functional teams on high impact projects with a mandate from the Philips Executive Committee. This is a central team that drives deep business insights, actionable strategic direction and thought leadership for the company.

The Strategy team consists of top-level strategists with wide-ranging backgrounds, nationalities, and competencies, based out of 4 global hubs located in Amsterdam, Boston, Shanghai and Singapore. The Strategy team is a talent pool for future Philips leaders.

An example of a typical project is to identify growth opportunities in the global Clinical Informatics market. In this space, the customer and competitive landscape is evolving rapidly. To address this potential growth, a combined Strategy, Business and Market team mapped the best value creation opportunities for Philips. The team assessed the opportunities across a wide range of geographies and recommended organic and inorganic growth options. As a result, a newly formed Healthcare Informatics Solutions and Services business group received full Executive Committee support for an ambitious growth strategy.
