Debbie Lovich
Managing Director & Senior Partner, Boston Consulting Group (BCG), USA

Debbie Lovich is a Senior Partner and Managing Director in the Boston office of BCG. After spending the first part of her career focused on strategy and operation, Debbie shifted her practice to the people side, recognizing that was a key limitation to value delivery. She focuses driving value through changing behaviors of leaders at every level – from the C-Suite down to the front line. With that focus, Debbie is Global Lead of BCG's People Strategy topic, co-leads BCG's Build, Operate, Transfer offering, and more recently leading BCG's efforts on the Future of Work. She enables clients to achieve people's advantage by ensuring they have the right leaders, culture, talent, and ways of working to achieve sustainable success. 

Debbie works across industries to enable success in:

  • Large scale change and transformation including digital transformation, Agile@Scale journeys, digital center creation, and Post-Merger Integration
  • Stand-alone future of work efforts to examine how we work, how we lead, how we organize and what we need to deliver in a post-covid world
  • Stand-alone large-scale leadership / culture transformation and/or talent upskilling to ensure clients are well-positioned for outperformance
  • "Design for adoption" front line leader effectiveness programs to enable client's existing best performers to transform how their peers work

Debbie is also a Forbes contributor; her column covers various topics relating to Leadership and can be consulted at:'s first client on the people side was BCG itself. She collaborated with an HBS professor to design and globally implement a program called "PTO" (Predictability, Teaming and Open Communication). This transformed how BCG's staff work, our culture and teaming. PTO is a key reason why BCG is consistently recognized as one of the best places to work. Debbie has a BA summa cum laude/Phi Beta Kappa in economics from Barnard College, Columbia University, and an MBA from the Harvard Business School.
