Who You'll Work With

You’ll based in one of our offices in North America and will be working with McKinsey Implementation (MI) – a rapidly growing capability for our firm.  As a member of MI, you’ll work in a collaborative culture, working closely with our client project teams solving their toughest problems, providing end-to-end support to ensure the clients are able to deliver and sustain the full benefits of McKinsey’s recommended change in their business. 
You will help clients think through how to adapt their operations in response to the continuing growth of advanced manufacturing technologies, including digital manufacturing. You’ll leverage your deep knowledge and expertise in the application of advanced manufacturing technology including digital and big data to improve end-to-end operations from product development to manufacturing to service.
When you join McKinsey, you are joining a firm whose culture is distinctive and inclusive. We will accelerate your development as a leader to create positive, enduring change in the world.

What You'll Do

You will work in small teams with colleagues and clients to build the strategies, capabilities, systems and processes needed to deliver bottom line results and ensure those results are sustained. 
In this role, you’ll have the opportunity to make a meaningful, hands-on contribution by managing projects and progress with minimal supervision, including tracking metrics, handling complex analyses, and preparing communications to report back to client and internal leadership. You will develop trust-based relationships with clients and be seen as a specialist in implementation and delivering results.
You will help clients define their target IT/OT technology stack, in order to enable the data, information flows, and analytics for their digital manufacturing transformation. Lastly, you will also help companies assess their current technologies and platforms, and define their go-forward stack strategies (e.g., which platforms to implement, and how to work with vendors).
