Big difference between McK selling a roadmap that doesn't get implemented and someone like Deloitte/ACN selling an implementation that got implemented but just didn't work.

Or...try to profit from and get more people addicted to opiods.

I always enjoy when McK gets off the hook because they can’t be held responsible for a strategy that wasn’t implemented. Imagine considering capability to implement as part of your recommendation… Anyhow, at least they didn’t recommend OxyContin in Kenya.

How can you blame McKinsey for that, they provide strategy not implementation .....we can’t go around blaming them or any strategy firms for stuff like this because .....at the end of the day the client is the one “owning” the recommendation and implementing the work

Very different tangential conversation but valid thought

Strategy should be realistic and implementable.

At least in my work, we partner with our clients for success for the longterm. The strategy should be in line with where your clients want to/will go. If they don’t you didn’t do your job well.

There are proven examples that this works. Shenzhen, China is a great example where the city was built from a fishing village and now the hub for high tech.

LOL, okay

Fun to hate on McKinsey but you can only drive implementation so far. Anyone who has worked for the fed feels this so hard.

These news outlets I tell you….

Is this really a news story that should have McK in the byline? There’s 0 culpability when your client asks for blue sky thinking then decides to implement in a half assed way

So, my timing isn't what it used to be. I left the firm in January after I had a real talk with myself and admitted that this was not what I wanted to do and was not at all good for my mental health.

For all the US colleagues: A fellow consultant was doing his MBA in the US. He left in a hurry due to covid and came back to London, but didn’t close his bank account with Santander and left $6-7K. Now the bank says that you can NOT transfer the money to another UK bank with online banking and you need to be physically present at one of their branches to do so. He is not planning to go back for a year. Any advice?
