Who You'll Work WithYou'll be working in one of our Middle East offices with McKinsey Implementation – a rapidly growing capability for our firm – globally and in the Middle East.

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 with all consultants, you will perform structured, fact-based diagnoses of systems, processes, and organizations across a broad range of industries. You will introduce new frameworks, tools, or ways of using existing material; identify clients for beta testing; and codify new knowledge in articles. Capital Productivity Consultants are thought leaders and expert practitioners with deep experience in delivering very large capital projects in the application of continuous improvement.
