About us and our team
"We transform our clients."
We teach how to think through strategic issues from first principles and top-down logic, rather than frameworks. Hence, our clients show a maturity and rigor of thought that lies way above the level of practically all competing candidates who interview for jobs at McKinsey, BCG, or Bain.

"We transform our clients."

Dr. Sidi S. Koné and Dr. Jörn Kobus are both experienced former strategy consultants, groomed at McKinsey and BCG

They combine 15+ years in MBB experience at the forefront of serving large global organizations with their most pressing strategic issues. They have served multi-billion-dollar-size client organizations by managing large scale consulting projects across multiple countries on 4 continents.

In their roles as Senior Engagement Managers at McKinsey, Sidi's and Jörn's expertise extended across a variety of sectors and functions, most notably Corporate Development, Commercial Excellence, Customer Experience and Digitalization. 

While serving as core members of their offices' recruiting teams, Sidi and Jörn have both interviewed hundreds of candidates at McKinsey and BCG - for a range of seniority levels and across different geographies.

Hence, they leverage the real evaluation criteria and scoring methods that MBB interviewers base their decisions on and that candidates are evaluated against when interviewing with these firms!

Besides living and breathing recruiting, Jörn also developed several internal training programs at McKinsey for young consultants in their first 24 months on the job. He also shaped McKinsey's global training program for Digitalization and Analytics.

Besides living and breathing recruiting, Jörn also developed and improved several internal training programs at McKinsey for young consultants in their first 24 months on the job. He also shaped the global training program for Digitalization and Analytics at the Firm.
Leading entire projects and managing teams at MBB has equipped Sidi and Jörn with the necessary grounding to think through strategic issues from the principles of rigorous top-down logic. This is a stark contrast to the junior thinking patterns mirrored in practically all "traditional" case preparation material available on the market. This material has typically been created by former junior consultants with less than three years MBB tenure and no experience in leading and steering MBB projects on a conceptual and operational level.

Sidi and Jörn have leveraged their experience from combined 1.5 decades at MBB and from coaching hundreds of high potential individuals for several years to jointly develop the world's most effective preparation programme for interviews at McKinsey, BCG, and Bain: The MBB Offer Machine™.
