ABOUT DIGITALBCG

Digital work represents more one-third of all of BCG’s business, and is a key growth engine for clients seeking to achieve competitive advantage and improve their performance. Digital is no longer a topic just for CIOs, but a top priority for the CEOs we serve across all industries.

DigitalBCG leverages an extensive network of digital strategy consultants, digital specialists (e.g., engineers, designers, and data scientists), and strategic partners to deliver value end-to-end, from strategy to design, development, and deployment. No two digital transformations are alike, but at DigitalBCG we welcome the challenge. We have a passion for problem-solving, and are energized by the opportunity to harness the power of data and leading-edge technology to unlock the potential of organizations and move their business forward.


WHAT YOU’LL DO

As a DigitalBCG Consultant, you will work with a team of BCG consultants and digital specialists advising clients on a range of topics that align to your areas of expertise and interests, including, but not limited to the following:

·         Digital Transformation & Strategy: Helping clients rethink the impact of digital on their business and accelerate their transformation efforts.

·         Customer Centricity: Reinventing the Customer Experience, leveraging journey maps, deep customer empathy, and data to create transformative digital interfaces, marketing strategies, and process innovations.

·         Digital Marketing & Personalization: Optimizing digital marketing programs across all digital channels and levers, including precision marketing, and analytics-enabled, one-to-one personalization.

·         Big Data & Analytics: Driving transformational value through cutting-edge applications of AI and Machine Learning tools that are fully scaled into the business.

·         New Ways of Working: Building ongoing organizational change capabilities, and helping clients transform into digital enterprises that continue to develop and innovate with speed, at scale.

·         Transformation of the Technology Function and Technology Build: Redesigning technology functions to improve flexibility, efficiency, and Business-IT alignment.


As a Digital Strategy Consultant, you can expect to spend approximately half of your time working on digital topics, and the remainder working on a broader set of critical, unique challenges presented by our clients. A DigitalBCG Consultant will work in case teams to help solve complex business issues, work closely with clients to help them better understand competitive issues, develop strategies for change, and position themselves for the next wave of growth and competitive advantage. Within BCG, DigitalBCG Consultants will build both a comprehensive consulting skillset and digital expertise by working on a mix of digital and traditional BCG client cases.
