McKinsey Analyst Event 2023: Whispering a Little Bit Louder
This IDC Market Perspective provides IDC’s views, learnings, perspectives, and advice after attending McKinsey’s global analyst summit held on September 18 and 19, 2023, in New York City. This document discusses touring the company’s Innovation & Learning Center in Newark, New Jersey, and listening to a wide array of speakers — including clients — who covered a series of sessions ranging from innovation and partners/alliances/acquisitions to GenAI and decarbonization.
“McKinsey pulled the curtain back just enough to provide analysts with a unique vantage point of the firm,” said Erin Hichman, research manager, Digital Business Professional Services at IDC. “What we found is a services provider much more dynamic and hands on than the McKinsey of the 20th century. Innovation is deeply embedded in the core of the firm, and the relationships McKinsey has with its clients are deep, holistic, and long lasting throughout the engagement and beyond.”
