The Boston Consulting Group

The Boston Consulting Group and Civic Consulting Alliance have collaborated on over 25 projects, representing more than $13 million in pro bono value to public sector clients. In 2017, a Consultant from BCG spent six months as part of Civic Consulting's team as an extern, taking advantage of a unique opportunity to build public-sector consulting expertise while making a tangible difference in the city.
Specifically, the extern participated in projects addressing regional public safety, including:

  • Defining the Chicago Police Department’s 2017 framework for reform and provided broad program management support for the Department in executing its wide-ranging reform efforts
  • Developing a strategic plan to guide the reform efforts and activities of the Chicago Police Department over the next 3-5 years

I loved working with my insightful, dedicated colleagues at CCA and experiencing what a team with a diverse range of professional backgrounds can accomplish. CCA’s marriage of private and public sector experience enabled us to tackle public sector challenges with many moving pieces in a unique and effective way.
