Arthur D. Little is dedicated to developing its staff through formal training and on-the-job learning. On joining, you will be assigned an assessor, whose role is to develop your professional consulting capabilities, and to offer help, advice and support.
During your first couple of weeks with the firm, you will have the opportunity to make contact with key individuals such as your assessor, the managing partner and other staff with whom you will be working. This will help you to develop relationships rapidly, and to gain a better understanding of the organizational culture and essential business processes and requirements.
As a new member of our team, you will find yourself immersed in cases straightaway, learning from our senior staff and working side-by-side with our clients. At Arthur D. Little you can expect to be involved in complex and challenging cases right from the start. Your case manager and coach will monitor your development and help you to advance within the firm.
Most of our consultant training courses are international, with participants from across our global organization. These courses are not only designed to develop our consultants’ skills, but also to provide our employees with an international network of colleagues and friends. During the last few years most of Arthur D. Little's international training has taken place in locations such as Mallorca, Dubai, Athens, Prague, and Barcelona. On average, you can expect to take part in one week’s training per year.
In addition to consultant training courses at each stage of your career, we provide practice-specific assignments and briefing sessions, which give you the opportunity to gain market and product information or increase your proficiency in a specific area. Examples of this are our courses in financial management or Arthur D. Little's strategy methodologies. You will also have opportunities to attend courses tailored to your particular needs.
