BCG works with two-thirds of the Fortune 500 and with other growing companies and philanthropic organisations. But the same could be said of many consultancies, or for that matter, law firms, software providers, or manufacturers of hand soap. Leading clients seek our help because BCG is different.
Because of our reputation for clean-sheet thinking, the best companies in the world come to BCG with their toughest strategic and operational problems. In the process, we build long and trusting relationships. We are confidants, not contractors. We work as partners with our clients: humble before the facts, relentless in telling the truth and collaborative in building capability. Among the praise clients have given us, a favourite is this: “We never knew how good we were until we worked with BCG.”
This partnership philosophy also applies within our own walls. We work together in small teams where senior teaches junior, and vice versa. Hierarchy is replaced with teams of engaged equals in which ideas trump tenure. Scottish philosopher David Hume said, “Truth springs from argument among friends.” At BCG, exceptional business leaders are found not only at our clients’ offices but also within our own.
The BCG team defies the bounds of geography and hierarchy to help drive our clients towards success.
