What You'll Do

ABOUT PUBLIC SECTOR WORK AND DIGITALBCG Public sector organizations are under pressure to deliver more for their citizens, from seamless digital services to policies and programs that address complex problems, societal challenges, and crises. BCG helps the public sector improve how it operates so that it can meet, and surpass, these expectations and their goals.At a time when providing better outcomes for citizens means being responsive, agile, and able to devise creative solutions to complex problems, many public sector organizations remain hierarchical and bureaucratic. They're built for another era. To perform on all fronts-from providing basic services to citizens to solving the most pressing societal challenges and responding to crises-governments need to transform how they're organized and how they operate.Digital work represents more than one-third of all of BCG's business, and is a key growth engine for clients seeking to achieve competitive advantage and improve their performance. Digital is no longer a topic just for CIOs, but a top priority for the CEOs we serve across all industries.DigitalBCG leverages an extensive network of digital strategy consultants, digital specialists (e.g., engineers, designers, and data scientists), and strategic partners to deliver value end-to-end, from strategy to design, development, and deployment.
