Manager - Learning Design




You will be based in one of our North American or European offices as part of McKinsey Learning’s Design and Development Center of Excellence (CoE). You will partner with learning stakeholders from both our internal learning organization and/or our client-facing McKinsey Academy organization. In both cases, you will work with subject matter experts, fellow members of the design team and other partners to design and develop learning solutions. Each solution will address a pressing business need – either one that exists for our internal McKinsey colleagues or for the clients of our Firm.

The Design and Development CoE is responsible for the design of learning offerings across the entire organization (both internal and productized client offerings), meeting the needs of diverse learners, providing learning in multiple formats and across a range of topics. While you won’t work directly with clients, you may have the opportunity to lead projects designed with our clients in mind. We also lead the Learning Research and Innovation Lab, which fuels the firm with leading-edge learning insights and helps build the learning skills of all our colleagues.


You’ll use your expertise to design learning that supports specific performance objectives, drives measurable impact, and leads to sustainable, scalable and repeatable innovations.

In this role, you will bring your creative design expertise to McKinsey Learning and McKinsey Academy, designing approaches and interactions based on the best thinking learning science, behavioral science and neuroscience have to offer.

You will lead the entire end-to-end design and development cycle, beginning with discussions around the performance needs of the audience and continuing through the creation of learning solutions using a variety of appropriate learning strategies. You’ll work across modalities and design approaches including interactive instructor-led classroom, digital, virtual classroom, performance support, and workplace-based learning ensuring solutions meet our high standards for quality and effectiveness.

You will work in a highly collaborative, dynamic and at times ambiguous environment, designing solutions that balance the near-term learner needs with long-term strategic aspirations of our stakeholder partners. You’ll work with learning colleagues, SMEs and our vendor partners to create content and build solutions with an eye toward effectiveness, quality, timeline and budget. You’ll coach and mentor less experienced content authors and stakeholders in content development principles, concepts, and best practices.

You will use your expertise to guide the project team to develop solutions in fit-for-purpose learning technologies, as well as contribute to the CoE’s awareness of new technologies. You’ll stay abreast of current trends in learning, findings on our user populations and insights from related disciplines, regularly contributing to the research agenda and providing innovative thought partnership.
