ALM Intelligence Identifies Best Communication & Change Management Consultants

2018 Vanguard Buyer Ratings Guide Rates Global Providers and Specialists

New York, NY – March 27, 2018 – ALM Intelligence – Consulting division, previously known as Kennedy Consulting, has released its 2018 ratings of Communication & Change Management consulting providers. Firms identified as leaders in the consulting industry include: McKinsey & Company, Conduent, Deloitte, The Boston Consulting Group, PwC, North Highland, and KPMG.

“Communications and change management consulting has lost none of its luster, despite research that continues to show most change efforts fail to meet their strategic objectives,” said Liz DeVito, Associate Director at ALM Intelligence. “A straightforward justification for provider confidence can be found in the market demand curve, wherein the individual competencies that comprise change management are robust consulting markets in and of themselves. Furthermore, the trend in change consulting is towards bundling additional competencies as providers continue their shift towards digital professional service delivery.”

Providers that achieved challenger status include: Aon, Capgemini, Bain & Company, EY, Mercer, Accenture, IBM, Korn Ferry, and Conner Partners. Other firms that were rated include: Booz Allen Hamilton, Willis Towers Watson, LaMarsh Global, Daggerwing Group, Clerestory Consulting, A.T. Kearney, Edelman, and Hitachi Consulting.

ALM’s Vanguard research series assesses firms in terms of their relative ability to create impact for their clients. In addition to its overall rating assessments of consulting providers’ depth and breadth of capabilities and best-in-class provider designations, this series includes detailed capability evaluations for each covered provider as well as a qualitative analysis of their consulting organization, approach, and service delivery model.
