Shortly after acquiring a Salesforce consulting S4G earlier this year, McKinsey & Company just hired its first-ever Chief Technology and Platform Officer 🚀 Jacky Wright from Microsoft.
A clear sign that we’re firmly in the digital #platform era, where industry leaders are considering becoming platforms and they also partner with others to scale.
💬 A few highlights from the post of Bob Sternfels, Global Managing Partner at McKinsey:
"Nearly half of our consultants are digital practitioners.
We have a thriving ecosystem of alliances with leading tech companies.
Jacky will help us further increase our rate of innovation, including innovating new platforms to help our clients transform and grow."
💡 This means that if you’re an aspiring industry leader, learning about platforms, #ecosystem and partnerships is now MUST and not a “nice to have”.
