BCG is a global management consulting firm and the world's leading advisor on business strategy. BCG partner with clients in all sectors and regions to identify their highest-value opportunities, address their most critical challenges, and transform their businesses.
What is strategy consulting? Should an automotive manufacturer acquire its biggest competitor? How can a large pharmaceutical company achieve major cost savings in its global supply chain? What is the most effective way for a leading financial-services player to significantly expand its retail-banking business? Should a technology firm offshore some, most, or all of its R&D function?
High-level, strategic questions such as these defy easy answers and textbook solutions, particularly in today’s complex business environment. Yet they are the types of questions that strategy consultants are called upon by clients to answer. And clients expect more than simply an accurate diagnosis of the problem: they want a practical, effective path to implement—one that can generate real bottom-line results and sustainable competitive advantage. This is the world of strategy consulting.
