Partner & Director
François Stragier is a core member of Boston Consulting Group’s Technology Advantage, Financial Institutions, and Operations practices.
He advises C-suite-level executives on how to leverage digital technologies and ways of working to enable their companies to grow and become more agile and efficient. He works across industries on digital transformation projects.
François has deep experience in transformation of support functions (IT, finance, procurement, HR), from defining a new vision in a digital world to executing the vision and transforming support functions to become more agile and user-centric, optimize operations, and recover at-risk projects.
Before joining BCG in 2011, François worked as an associate partner at Kurt Salmon, where he led the outsourcing and offshoring advisory activity and was a core member of the CIO advisory practice. Before switching to consulting, he was an IT manager at a leading corporate and investment bank.
Deploying digital at scale requires establishing global process owners, centers of excellence, and a customer- and business-centric culture.
Technology moves too fast for a traditional IT transformation. With agile, companies can begin seeing results in months.
Investments in new technology yield results only for companies that reassess, rethink, and restructure the way they work.
Technology is more than just a way to cut costs. It helps support functions deliver better internal customer service and enables business units to “work smarter.”
It will surprise few that the executive boardroom does not dedicate much attention to IT strategy except to look for ways to keep its budget under control.
Is your IT team struggling to implement large, enterprise-wide projects on time and under budget? By changing tactics, companies can save millions each year.
Digital technologies are ever-more sophisticated. And they’re affecting our lives in increasingly significant ways. At USI 2016, both the possibilities and the implications were in the spotlight.
