We have developed a powerful suite of tools and solutions to help our Organization clients drive performance. Here are some examples:

Organizations and their leaders around the world are constantly pushed to transform themselves to keep up with the ever-changing external environment and the internal demands of different workforce demographics.

These programs draw on our combination of industry and learning expertise and also on our networks, which bring together McKinsey experts, seasoned executives, and faculty from leading academic institutions to share the latest thinking, develop the necessary leadership skills, and facilitate peer learning.

As part of a broader diagnostic, it helps surface issues that hold back the leadership's collective performance. The survey quantifies and benchmarks the top team's effectiveness against the dimensions of alignment, execution, and renewal—helping drive improvement across themes such as strengthening strategic decision-making and harnessing leaders’ capabilities.

Centered Leadership Survey

McKinsey’s Centered Leadership Survey assesses executives along five leadership dimensions associated with high performance: meaning, framing, connecting, engaging, and energizing. Among leaders who have mastered all five, 92 percent say they have the skills to lead through times of major change, versus just 21 percent for those yet to master them. Executives who take the survey, often as part of leadership-development programs, receive a detailed report on their profile relative to their peers around the world.

Merger Management Boot Camp

McKinsey’s proprietary Merger Management Boot Camp is an intensive, interactive workshop for teams driving post-merger integration. Clients can choose from modules spanning the entire merger process—all harnessing McKinsey’s experience to help participants deliver the concrete end products required for the merger.
