Fellowships: Operations

The challenges posed by today's competitive global economy are forcing companies to consider significant changes to their operations—including difficult organizational transformations. As companies are forced to move faster, become more efficient, and find fresh sources of differentiation, the operational component of change has become increasingly important and compelling.

BCG has a long history of success in operations improvement, even developing a proprietary approach to handling the operational side of change to ensure that results are delivered to the bottom line.

Building on that legacy, our fellowship efforts aim to discover new sources of operational advantage and improve the odds for those companies who recognize their need to develop and implement change programs.
