Nice post.

I think the key similarity between these two firms is their focus on efficiency as the primary economic engine. Outsourcing as executed by GE has produced no material innovation. GE has successfully executed extending company value propositions to drive growth. McKinsey is NOT a consulting firm that has ever been successful at pushing anything more than the denominator when developing strategy. Economic analysis is the primary tool employed with the McKinsey consulting model.

I would posit the reason we see so much of McKinsey and GE is because they over index as CEOs. This I read as a negative.

John, I add to your perspective below:



Good post. I enjoyed the linked pdf. You often talk about module linking. Do you have some good sources for designing business processes in modular form?
