Today’s winning organizations need a combination of strategic insight, domain expertise, data, and technology. That is why McKinsey complements its traditional consulting excellence with solutions: technologies and specialized teams that deliver McKinsey results.

When our solutions are integrated – either during or outside of consulting engagements – they make an immediate impact on business performance. Because solutions are measurable and repeatable, they allow business leaders to make rigorous, data-driven decisions on the biggest challenges facing their organizations.

Through our solutions, McKinsey combines software, proprietary data, and extensive expertise in order to significantly improve an organization’s performance and health:

Management software gives managers the applications they need in order to act more effectively and focus on what’s essential.

Analytics solves business problems by applying advanced algorithms and tools to a client’s own data.

Insights provide analysis and fresh data about the organizations, customers, competitors, and markets relevant to client’s business.
