BOSTON—Today, Boston Consulting Group (BCG) announces the launch of BCG X, a new home for tech-build and design talent to work with the world’s leading organizations and solve their biggest strategy and technology challenges. The new business unit brings together cutting-edge AI, visionary business ventures, and unique software and products in the most strategic industry applications for clients.
BCG’s digital business has grown dramatically over the last five years, with nearly half of the firm’s business now driven by digital client work. BCG is already working with many of the world’s largest businesses across all industries on their tech strategies and transformations. As the market continues to evolve and demand for support accelerates, the formation of this new business unit will strengthen BCG’s ability to work on the largest and most complex digital transformation projects.
The move brings together already successful multidisciplinary teams that collectively have seen triple-digit growth every year for the past seven years. BCG X will further enhance collaboration among diverse disciplines to serve clients in an even more integrated and seamless way. BCG X plans to double the size of its workforce over the next three years.
“Facilitating a more formal integration of our already-collaborative teams allows us to build faster and more boldly, as well as ensure we are building human-centric products responsibly,” said Sylvain Duranton, BCG’s global leader of BCG X. It will also enhance our client experience by facilitating greater integration of BCG’s tech capabilities into a streamlined set of offers and products. BCG X will be the natural home for the world’s best technology talent who want to work with the leaders of the world’s largest and most complex organizations to help them achieve their full digital potential.”
BCG X’s unparalleled impact is powered by the BCG Digital Ventures (BCGDV) and BCG GAMMA teams, as well as the engineering, design, and product teams from BCG Platinion. Together as BCG X, these teams represent more than 2,500 technologists, designers, and builders who are part of a larger community of more than 7,000 BCG tech and digital consultants.
