Dr. Zhongyi Feng studied at Heidelberg University and received his PhD in 2019. His research focus was the application of quantum technology in environmental sciences. He co-authored first proof-of-concept studies to analyze the age of glacier ice and ocean water using atom trap trace analysis. In 2020, he changed gears and joined Bain & Company, one of the world's leading management consulting firms. Since then he has moved into a role as product manager of Bain's cloud-based transformation management software.

The first part of this talk will give you an overview of the job profile of a management consultant and why the consulting industry provides excellent career opportunities for physicists. The second part focuses on digital products in the consulting industry and the role of a product manager to drive desirability, feasibility and viability of software.
