McKinsey Australia

McKinsey in Australia

McKinsey & Company is a global management-consulting firm that works with leading companies to improve their performance and develop solutions for their most significant challenges. Our goal is to work on issues that really matter to our clients and build their capabilities. We nurture a culture of innovation—in developing knowledge and evolving our client-service models so they are driven by our clients’ needs, not our own.

With over 50 years of experience in Australia—and offices in Melbourne, Sydney, and Perth—our work spans multiple sectors of the economy, including the social sector. We are ambitious for our clients—we want to work with them as they strive for world-class performance. Our vision is based on seeing Australian organisations achieve their potential, and to help realise the economic and social benefits for all Australians.

The Australian office plays a leading role in developing McKinsey’s knowledge agenda, and businesses around the world are using frameworks and approaches developed here. Our office also pioneered McKinsey Implementation, a specialised group with broad operations experience that works directly at client sites to build the capabilities and systems needed to deliver long-term impact.
