Reinvention: a short film

We have a long history of helping our clients reinvent themselves. In this short film, we celebrate our clients’ transformations—and share the evolution of our own firm along the way.

Defined by our people

Our firm is designed to operate as one—a single global partnership united by a strong set of values, including a deep commitment to diversity.

We take a consistent approach to recruiting and skills development regardless of where our people are located, so that we can quickly deliver the right team, with the right experience and expertise, to every client, anywhere in the world.

Our consultants include medical doctors, engineers, designers, data scientists, business managers, civil servants, entrepreneurs, and research scientists. They join McKinsey for the opportunity to apply their talents to complex, important challenges.

Powered by knowledge

Our work is founded on a rigorous understanding of every client’s institutional context, sector dynamics, and macroeconomic environment. For this reason, we invest more than $600 million of our firm’s resources annually in knowledge development, learning and capability building. We study markets, trends, and emerging best practices, in every industry and region, locally and globally. Our investment in knowledge also helps advance the practice of management. We publish our findings extensively, and we engage with leading thinkers on the most pressing issues facing our clients and society.

Always innovating

Our clients’ needs are constantly changing, so we continually seek new and better ways to serve them. To do this, we are bringing new talent into the firm, acquiring new companies, and developing new capabilities, for example, in design, analytics, and digital.

We serve clients at every level of their organization, whether as a trusted advisor to top management or as a hands-on coach for front line employees. We partner with clients to put recommendations into practice and work directly with them over the long-term, to help develop workforce skills, drive operational improvement, and apply new working methods.

No matter the challenge, we focus on delivering practical and enduring results, and equipping our clients to grow and lead.
