    »BCG’s Fifty Years and Counting

    Fifty years is a long time. How long? Well, the Beatles hadn’t yet played Ed Sullivan in 1963, and therefore, pretty much no one—on this side of the pond anyway—had any idea John, Paul, George or Ringo existed. Long enough? Well, seven months before the mop tops wanted to hold your hand, Bruce Henderson hung a shingle as a one-man consulting unit of the Boston safe Deposit and Trust Company at 100 Franklin Street in Boston.

    »Editor's Note: Sliced Bread... Strategically Speaking
    Strategy Consulting has been around longer than sliced bread. The machine that slices bread was invented in Iowa in 1927 and began operation a year later. (By the way, bet you didn’t know that same machine was banned briefly in 1943 as a wartime conservation measure. Neither did I.)
