What we do

QuantumBlack, a McKinsey Company, helps companies use data to drive decisions. We combine business experience, expertise in large-scale data analysis and visualisation, and advanced software engineering know-how to deliver results. From aerospace to finance to Formula One, we help companies prototype, develop, and deploy bespoke data science and data visualisation solutions to make better decisions. We harness data, analytics and design to give organisations a clear path to improve performance. When we combine our skills and approach with McKinsey & Company’s knowledge and expertise, we equip clients with an incomparable level of competitiveness.

Why we do

Spearheading end-to-end transformation. We partner with some of the world’s most advanced organisations in their journey to improve performance. In today’s competitive environment, organisations that respond faster to change, with better insight and greater precision, hold a sustainable advantage. At the same time, information has gone from scarce to superabundant, affording an unprecedented opportunity for them to do so. Effective decision-making is therefore increasingly underpinned by data processing and technology capabilities.

How we do

We established QuantumBlack to reimagine how organisations can continuously improve and outperform rivals. To do this we follow a structured method enhanced by capability building of both people and technology. Our process deploys cutting-edge techniques and offers a scalable approach that targets multi-year transformations. Impact Performance is at the centre of everything we do. Inspired by sport, we know that the smallest edge can make the biggest difference. Our multidisciplinary team will help clients achieve that edge. Trusted partnership Data is the lifeblood of any modern organsation, and trust is the currency of our engagements with clients. We strive to maintain the highest levels of data handling, governance and information security with our clients. Nothing is more important to us. Transformational thinking The real power of analytics is embedding them into the operating model of an organisation. Our advanced analytics capabilities combined with McKinsey’s deep domain expertise and change management experience equip us with a powerful lens to evaluate and improve every facet of an organisation. Boundary-breaking We believe that the most valuable insights happen at the boundaries of different disciplines, data, and techniques. Our client work focuses on combining data expertise with human judgement to reimagine and rework how a business can operate in the future. Capability building To diagnose challenges and prioritise actions, we focus on capability building-not just the models. We follow a proven five-step protocol grounded in McKinsey’s decades of strategy work as well as our unique approach to discovering and exploiting data-driven insights. This is formed of: Ideation, Intelligence, Inception, Intervention, and Independence.
