McKinsey's IoT Venture aims to help client unlock the enormous potential of the Internet of Things. Our value proposition spans the full product life cycle, ranging from data diagnostic to pilot, strategy, solution implementation, and ongoing operation.

We view IoT as a transformative opportunity for clients across almost all sectors. Our goal is to partner with clients to define and deliver on this transformation.

It is helping to shift our model toward asset-based consulting and is a foundation for – and expands our investment in – our entrepreneurial culture.

New Ventures is a recently formed part of McKinsey focused on fostering innovations driven by analytics, design thinking, mobile, social and other technologies, and integrating them into our client work. It is a foundation for—and expands our investment in—our entrepreneurial culture. A primary objective is to offer practical solutions and tools that help people at all levels of an organization generate insights they need to address both strategic and day-to-day decisions.

These assets complement McKinsey's traditional client service and are delivered in many ways, including intensive deep dives, subscriptions to software tools, integrated workshops, hands-on training programs and project-based engagements. The design of the teams and operating models enables a true "startup" culture inside the nearly 100-year-old McKinsey, with all the benefits of both small-team agility and broad-scale experience.
