The Boston Consulting Group is a global management consulting firm and an advisor in business strategy.[1]

The Financial Times is said to have once credited the firm's founder, Bruce Henderson, with inventing the field of corporate strategy. The firm's ideas are documented in the book, "The Boston Consulting Group on Strategy: Classic Concepts and New Perspectives."[2]

In a report titled "Thriving in the New Normal: Corporate Banking 2008/2009," BCG said in December of 2008 that financial turmoil has permanently altered the corporate banking landscape and will give rise to a new post-economic-crisis status quo characterized by tougher operating conditions as well as by a widening divide between leading banks and those that profited from favorable economic conditions - notably low loan losses - but were unprepared for the crisis.[3]
