Our History of Shaping the Future

BCG began not as another management consulting firm but as a pioneer of bold, new approaches to running a company.


The Growth, Success, and Future of BCG

Thinking beyond the obvious to create long-term impact for its clients for more than 50 years

Helping organizations make the changes needed to seize competitive advantage—and to win—has always been BCG’s raison d'être. Since 1963, we have been helping leaders and their organizations build lasting advantage. The independent spirit handed down from Bruce Henderson, BCG's founder—always challenging the status quo—has given the firm the courage to look beyond the obvious to find solutions for the past 50 years. 

Henderson, who would have been 100 years old in April 2015, was a pioneer in business strategy and a key figure in the development of management consulting. His writings reveal a visionary who excelled at challenging the status quo, a brilliant thinker, and a man of action, driven by a strong sense of purpose. 

The breakthrough ideas that BCG developed—and continues to develop today—have become business canon and helped establish our reputation in the marketplace. And the core values established by BCG played a large role in making the firm what it is today—while continuing to guide our work on a daily basis.


When BCG adopted “strategy” as its specialty, it ignited a process that would revolutionize business management forever. From the beginning, the firm’s passion for ideas has been its mark of distinction. At BCG, ideas create value. The experience curve and the growth share matrix, with their insights into competitive advantage, set the stage for future developments and initiatives. 

Over the years, a constant flow of ideas and analyses, emerging from discussions with colleagues and collaborations with clients, have contributed to BCG’s unparalleled record of strategic breakthroughs and thought leadership.


When Bruce Henderson founded BCG, he envisioned that it might someday change the world. Through collaboration with clients, orchestration of strategy, and recognition of distinctive organizational dynamics, BCG consultants have guided industry leaders toward recognizing and responding to their changing world, helping them to capitalize on emerging opportunities, and seizing the competitive advantage. 

With true insight and the ability to transform it into action, BCG has driven real change in organizations and fulfilled Henderson’s vision. BCG has not only transformed the way the world does business but also fundamentally changed the game.
