Who We Are
Boston Consulting Group partners with leaders in business and society to tackle their most important challenges and capture their greatest opportunities. BCG was the pioneer in business strategy when it was founded in 1963. Today, we work closely with clients to embrace a transformational approach aimed at benefiting all stakeholders-empowering organizations to grow, build sustainable competitive advantage, and drive positive societal impact.
Our diverse, global teams bring deep industry and functional expertise and a range of perspectives that question the status quo and spark change. BCG delivers solutions through leading-edge management consulting, technology and design, and corporate and digital ventures. We work in a uniquely collaborative model across the firm and throughout all levels of the client organization, fueled by the goal of helping our clients thrive and enabling them to make the world a better place.
Practice Area Profile

The Operations Practice (OPS... Area is one of BCG's largest functional practices. We help our clients create competitive advantage by enhancing their performance and building strategic capabilities. BCG's expertise in Operations covers the following areas - supply chain management, procurement, manufacturing, service operations, cost efficiency, operational transformation, research & product development, program and project management, all with a strong digital and analytics overlay.

Manufacturing & Supply Chain are a key priority for our OPS practice area - in fact it is the largest business line within OPS at BCG.

Our work in M&SC is structured along three main questions:
• What to produce? deals with topics around make-or-buy both on a strategic and a more operational level. For example we supported an Automotive OEM with the question whether to enter into the battery cell manufacturing business
• Where to produce? is a subsequent question around production and supply chain networks. Recently we worked for example with a large healthcare client in making their global supply chain more resilient
• How to produce? finally focuses on the four walls of the factory or the warehouse itself. With a large consumer client we for example designed their future warehouse including latest technology to make it most efficient

Within each of the three questions we are guided by the three key strategic directions of operations leaders to enhance their competitiveness: They must simultaneously improve their value proposition, strengthen their operational resilience, and pursue sustainability.

Along the three areas outlined above you will
• Work with our clients on M&SC projects
• These projects can be on the one hand very strategic, but on the other very operational directly within a factory
• Work on creating/further developing our tool suite (e.g., our advanced network modelling)
