McKinsey & Company’s Public Sector capabilities cover a wide range of services that help federal agencies and defense organizations to improve efficiencies and effectiveness and to better fulfill their missions.
In the defense and security arenas, the company helps clients develop and execute strategic plans, analyze organizational behavior, explore new methods to improve operational efficiency, and redesign and implement IT infrastructure and systems.
For example, McKinsey & Company recently helped a U.S. defense agency to ensure the successful execution of its five-year strategy by designing and developing a new governance structure and performance-management system. It also supported a federal agency in the development of a new strategic plan that unified a fragmented organization and reenergized its team.
In addition, the company recently launched the McKinsey Center for Government (MCG), which is a new global hub for research, collaboration, and innovation in government performance. The MCG also provided some timely research on how the defense industry can “learn from its past” in today’s challenging marketplace.
