Financial Services

MasterCard is a technology company and payments industry leader; one of the primary payment networks worldwide and a driving force in traditional and digital commerce.


Their challenge

Faced with a rapidly changing UK payments market driven mainly by dramatic digital change, the business required a refresh of its UKI market execution strategy, originally facilitated by BCG.

DWG were engaged to provide digital expertise and strategic planning support to the refresh.


Our approach

Using the provision of day-to-day BAU strategy planning support, collectively the local management and DWG team had time to review, validate, and augment the original work through new fact-base insight.

From a structured approach suitable to the pace and methodologies of the business and market, it was a format that ultimately led to buy-in across the business.



Using the proven systematic framework of our Strategy Development service we were able to help MasterCard UKI successfully:

  • Reorientate its strategy
  • Attain commitment to the direction across all levels of the business
  • Refocus its strategy delivery for the next five years

DWG was retained by MasterCard on numerous projects.


“Great support to our strategic development.”
