The BHI Strategy Lab explores game-changing business ideas by capturing, developing, and applying cutting-edge thinking from within and beyond business.
We are not your traditional consultants: we are a diverse group of philosophers, data scientists, biologists, and engineers working with leading academics and external collaborators.
The Strategy Lab was created to formalize a research body within BCG that would help identify and develop ideas that will change the way leaders think about strategy.
Some of our current research themes include resilience & navigating uncertainty, imagination & innovation, and corporate vitality.
How can companies build resilience to increase their capacity to absorb stress, recover critical functionality, and thrive in altered circumstances?
We explore and refute five false beliefs about resilience and look at the key steps required to build it and bake it into strategy and operations.
