Senior Partner & Managing Director
Allison Bailey has led several efforts to build new practices within The Boston Consulting Group, including Education and Public Sector.
She became a BCG Fellow in 2012, the topic of her research is digital education and the potential it holds for primary, secondary, and postsecondary education. Digital learning can help address many of the limitations of a traditional classroom—universal access to great teachers, a personalized and adaptive learning experience, and timely, relevant, and engaging education content. The goal of Allison's fellowship is to understand how these digital forces are shaping our education landscape—creating new winners and losers, changing traditional economics, and offering the power to educate the next generation in fundamentally new ways.
Since joining BCG in 1987, she has worked extensively with clients on issues related to strategy, growth, organization, large-scale transformation, operational improvement, turnaround, M&A, and postmerger integration. She counsels CEOs on setting overall strategic direction, managing through transition, building effective leadership teams, and driving value.
Prior to joining BCG, Allison worked for Bankers Trust as an associate in corporate finance.
