Michele Brocca is the global topic leader for medtech operations and a core member of the Operations, Health Care, and Industrial Goods practices at The Boston Consulting Group.

Since joining BCG in 2000, Michele has worked with clients across a range of industries, including industrial goods, health care, consumer goods, and retail.

Michele believes that in large-scale programs such as postmerger integrations, supply chain transformations, or productivity and profitability improvement, who and how are at least as crucial as what. He believes that it is imperative to define not only the solution and the target end state but also the path to get there and the organizational model needed.

One must ask, “Who is engaged? How and when? At what stages of the program? How to ensure the ability to leverage the organization’s full knowledge and expertise? How to build new capabilities? How to ensure buy-in and advocacy for the chance?”

Michele’s work is based on the concept that programs that do not address these dimensions adequately will fail to fully capture the opportunity and create sustainable change.

Michele joined BCG upon finishing his doctoral studies.
