What is Digital McKinsey?

Digital McKinsey brings together the best of McKinsey’s technology and digital capabilities, combining our Business Technology Office, McKinsey Digital Labs, and our digital functions into one cohesive organization. Digital McKinsey not only advises but also builds, operates, and transfers capabilities to help our clients using digital technology to transform their businesses. With a team of 2,100 consultants and experts across 60 offices, Digital McKinsey works on key technology topics including IT modernization, IT strategy, agile, cloud, cybersecurity, and digital transformation. We serve a range of companies, from start-ups to global Fortune 100 firms, and have delivered 15,000+ digital and technology engagements at 2,000+ clients. Digital McKinsey provides a common home for technology savvy colleagues who want to work at the intersection of business and technology.

What kind of work do Digital Consultants do? 

Digital McKinsey Fellows (also called Business Analysts) experience a variety of client engagements over their first few years at the firm, in order to gain broad exposure to client organizations and leaders, and to different industries and business topics. However, our consultants are passionate about technology and digital topics, so they spend the majority of their time focusing on client work in those areas, e.g.,

- Transforming customer experience via digital enablement at a global bank                                                
- Establishing cyber security measures and protections to ensure data confidentiality at a major pharmaceutical company                                           
- Optimizing enterprise architecture, infrastructure, and application management at a large technology company
