McKinsey consultant to suggest steps to streamline Roman Curia

Catholic World News - June 13, 2013

Pope Francis has asked a German management consultant to suggest administrative changes at the Vatican.

Thomas von Mitschke-Collande, a manager of the international consulting firm McKinsey & Company, was recommended to the Pontiff after he furnished advice that helped to streamline the financial affairs of the Berlin archdiocese and the German bishops’ conference.

Mitschke-Collande is the author of a book entitled Schafft sich die katholische Kirche ab? (“Is the Catholic Church Self-Destructing?”). He has argued that the Church faith should be spreading rapidly, in light of the popular demand for a sense of spiritual direction, but Church leaders have failed to respond to that demand.
