McKinsey Digital

We drive transformation and build businesses by bringing together the capabilities needed to help organizations grow and thrive in the digital age. We help our clients harness the power of data and artificial intelligence, modernize core technology and capitalize on new technology, optimize and automate operations, fuel digital growth, create stunning digital experiences, and build digital talent and culture.

All of this is possible because of the team we’ve put together

We can deliver meaningful impact because of the team we’ve put together, which includes thousands of data scientists, engineers, architects, developers, technology leads, agile coaches, award-winning designers, and cybersecurity experts, working flexibly and seamlessly for our Japanese clients. The majority of our work in Japan now involves McKinsey Digital, and in the past few years alone, we’ve served thousands of clients and completed hundreds of technology transformations and new-business builds. Even further strengthening our success ratio, we have multiple proprietary solutions and an ecosystem of partners and alliances with the world’s leading technology companies. And, with McKinsey Academy, we help our clients develop the culture and capabilities needed to be agile and innovate ahead of the market, long after our engagement ends.
