Role of the Center

No other organizational phenomenon is as intrinsically tied to the rise of the modern multibusiness corporation as the role of the corporate center. As a result of changing internal and external forces, corporate leaders now face a number of new questions:

  • What are the megatrends affecting our business, and how do we adjust the role and accountabilities of our corporate center accordingly?

  • How do we determine the optimal size of our corporate headquarters?

  • How do we most efficiently add value to business units (through vertical synergies) with minimal cost?

Our Role of the Center experts are an integrated part of our work in corporate strategy, organization models, and people behavior. BCG’s global expertise provides a holistic approach to adjusting the role of the corporate center to the new challenges corporations are facing. Read More
