Our Capital Productivity group is part of our Operations Practice, providing clients with support and advising their management teams on strategic and operational questions relating to large construction projects. You’ll be working with McKinsey’s Operations practice in Europe as
Consultant (m/f) - Capital Projects & Infrastructure
What you'll do
You will work in teams of consultants providing managerial expertise gained from large construction projects.
This includes applying your experience in bottom-up design, design optimization, risk management, contracting and procurement, construction management, and the ramp-up of production processes in capital-intensive industries.
You will likely carry out lean construction project implementations and capability building. As part of this, you’ll develop short- and long-term capability-building plans for all relevant levels of client leadership and McKinsey client service teams, with anticipated deliverables, outcomes, and required resources.
You’ll have the opportunity to introduce new frameworks, tools, or ways of using existing material, to identify clients for beta testing, and to codify new knowledge in articles. Colleagues will look to you for your expertise on project/program management tools such as portfolio management, lifecycle planning, and project tracking.
As in with all consultants, you will perform structured, fact-based diagnoses of systems, processes, and organizations across a broad range of industries.
