McKinsey Analytics

We help clients become analytics-driven organizations that achieve better performance through data.

The sheer amount and variety of existing and new data generated in the world today are unprecedented. As this growth continues, so do the opportunities for organizations to use their data to create Change that Matters. McKinsey Analytics helps clients identify and capture the most value and meaningful insights from data, and turn them into competitive advantages.

Our global teams of consultants and leading data scientists, engineers, and analysts—including people from cutting-edge analytics firms like QuantumBlack, a McKinsey Company—possess deep industry and technical expertise and understand underlying industry economics, customer needs, and competitive dynamics. We deliver insight and impact for clients through a wide range of flexible support models, providing ad hoc, deeply transformational, and ongoing analytics architecture and solutions. 

Importantly, we are fully technology agnostic and able to work with our clients' preferred technologies and platforms. Once the tools and models are implemented, we focus on building and transferring capabilities and skills to ensure that analytics becomes a sustained competitive advantage.
