Managing Director & Senior Partner
In an increasingly bionic age, leading organizations will be those that can blend the powerful capabilities of humans with the latest advances in technology. Keeping up with the human side of that equation means enabling continuous skill development, both within an executive team and across an organization.
Whether it’s the evolution of digital and AI, shifts in work models and customer expectations, or the need to address issues of climate and sustainability, the pace of change is dizzying. Learning must keep up to prepare the workforce of the future.
For leaders facing a large-scale transformation, BCG U’s Capability Accelerator program offers urgently needed, tech-enabled support through specific skill development, with a focus on increasing and deepening capabilities with speed and at scale. We deliver unique accelerators in many fields of expertise, including digital, agile at scale, climate and sustainability, AI, and customer journey. Each accelerator is tailored to an organization’s needs, incorporating cutting-edge methodology, curricula, learning science, and education technology.
The ability to learn quickly has become one of the primary competitive advantages of our times. Today’s leaders must embrace an always-on transformation mindset, with the aim of becoming a learning organization primed to continuously update and pivot.
BCG U’s Learning Advantage experts help organizations compete on the rate of learning by developing a customized reskilling and upskilling strategy with measurable impact for every client. Whether by transforming an existing talent development function into a next-generation capability-building powerhouse or designing a corporate academy with the right technology to support it, creating competitive and sustainable learning advantage helps organizations attract, upskill, and retain critical talent.
Success today requires more than a good strategy and a well-developed execution plan. It requires leaders to think and act in new ways: to learn, anticipate, and adapt. Today’s leaders need to be generative—able to reenergize and increase the value they deliver for their people, customers, partners, investors, communities, and themselves. BCG’s executive coaching offering helps leaders meet the challenges of today’s increasingly complex world and drive transformational change—for their people, customers, investors, partners, and society.
