Competitive Strategy by Kevin P. Coyne

17 Episodes

Kevin P. Coyne will reveal the unique approach he used to develop the competitive strategies for over 25 Fortune 500 CEO clients over a storied career at McKinsey & Company. This is the first time he will ever discuss his approach step-by-step for a worldwide audience.

It is a unique and groundbreaking program offering advanced skills on strategy found nowhere else. Not in the Harvard Business Review and not in the McKinsey Quarterly. The content is exclusively available to Firmsconsulting Insiders.

This is the first of 8 "Titans of Strategy" training programs we are releasing to be led by some of the most influential former partners in the history of BCG & McKinsey.

Kevin P. Coyne is a founder of Coyne Scientific. He is the former Director and co-leader of both McKinsey’s Worldwide Strategy Practice and CEO transitions practice, and the host of The Consulting Offer II

Kevin attended the Harvard Business School after his junior year of college. He simultaneously graduated from both Rice University and Harvard in 1978 and joined McKinsey as the youngest associate ever and one of the youngest principals ever appointed. During a 27 year career at McKinsey Kevin advised clients on a variety of issues and across a broad range of industries including banking, consumer goods, venture capital, industrial, telecommunications and the public sector. His primary area of focus was corporate strategy. He has worked one-on-one with over twenty-five different CEOs.

Kevin has been an active leader in civic roles throughout his career. He served as an Executive Assistant and sole policy advisor to the Deputy Secretary of the United States Treasury, the second ranking department official in the Reagan Administration.

In that role he advised on Brazil’s economic growth, served as an intermediary between Britain and Argentina after the Falklands war and advised on opening Japan’s capital markets. He recently co-led several pro-bono efforts, including the following:

Setting up the Bush-Clinton Katrina Fund
Leading the Atlanta and London Olympic Games committees on several initiatives
Leading the team supporting former US President Carter on the Atlanta Project helping low-income citizens

Kevin has co-written 6 Harvard Business Review articles, 12 McKinsey Quarterly articles and 2 bestselling business books, as well as many other articles across influential business publications.
