Are you ready for the 4th industrial revolution?

Our Capability Centers can help your company advance to the forefront of operational excellence.
Our worldwide network of Digital Capability Centers (DCCs) was launched in 2017 and offers a unique environment where you can see and touch Industry 4.0 in real life and learn about the end-to-end transformation of a simulated company, from lean excellence to a digitized industry leader. Industry 4.0 refers to the improvements in manufacturing that can be achieved through the use of technology and analytics across operations. 
The DCCs complement our existing network of McKinsey Capability Centers (MCCs).  Both are state-of-the-art facilities designed with adult-learning principles in mind. They offer the opportunity to actively practice skills in experiential environments and see the impact of decisions made in a real-time, risk-free setting.
