Booz & Company is a global management consulting firm focused on serving and shaping the senior agenda of leading institutions. The firm is known for their functional expertise, industry foresight, and “sleeves rolled up” approach to working with our clients.
Booz & Company has been known for foresight and impact. They are known for their industry and functional expertise across public and private sectors, their influential global studies and books, and their management magazine, strategy+business. The company developed the concept of human capital in the 1940s, product life cycle in the 1950s, supply chain management in the 1980s, smart customization in the 1990s, and organizational DNA in the current decade
Booz & Company is the oldest management consulting firm still in business, the first to use the term “management consultant,” and the only firm to be a top-tier provider of consulting services in both the public and private sectors around the world.
In 1914, our founder, Edwin Booz, began conducting business research and solving problems for clients near his native Chicago. For nearly a century, we have helped our clients realize the essential advantage needed to survive, thrive, and win.
In 2008, we separated our operations from our U.S. Government consulting business, which retains the name Booz Allen Hamilton. We continue our work with businesses, governments, and organizations around the world, now under the name Booz & Company.
In 2009, the firm combined with U.S.-based management consultancy Katzenbach Partners, a leader in the domain of organizational performance.
In 2012, Axon Advisory Partners joined the company to launch Booz Digital, a full-service team of strategists, designers, and technologists who help companies turn ideas into transformational digital businesses.
We have been involved in some of the most celebrated business episodes of their day. The dawn of the contract system for Hollywood movies, the merger of the National and American football leagues, the rescue of the Chrysler corporation from bankruptcy, and the creation of Deutsche Telekom from government agencies that had grown up on both sides of the Iron Curtain all involved Booz assignments.
