ALM Intelligence Identifies Best Organization Strategy Consultants

2018 Vanguard Buyer Ratings Guide Rates Global Providers and Specialists

New York, NY – August 27, 2018 – ALM Intelligence – Consulting division, previously known as Kennedy Consulting, has released its 2018 ratings of Organization Strategy Consulting providers. Seven firms were identified as leaders in the consulting industry: Bain & Company, The Boston Consulting Group, Deloitte, EY, KPMG, McKinsey &  Company, and PwC. ALM Intelligence defines organization strategy as professional services focused on helping companies mobilize their resources to execute strategic objectives.

“Demand for organization strategy consulting is at an all-time high, although the nature of that demand is shifting in the face of a client imperative for speed and tangible outcomes,” said Liz DeVito, Associate Director at ALM Intelligence. “While there is a diversity of providers catering to this market, there is a consistent pattern in new approaches to service delivery, where solutions design is a collaborative, iterative process between consultant and client. The soft factors of people and culture are emphasized earlier in the design process and management and operating systems are structured to maximize stakeholder engagement and alignment with the business strategy.”

Providers that attained challenger status include: Camelot, Capgemini, Eagle Hill Consulting, EFESO, Kates Kesler, Korn Ferry, North Highland, Oliver Wyman, and Roland Berger. Other firms that were rated include: Accenture, A.T. Kearney, BearingPoint, Hitachi Consulting, IBM, L.E.K. Consulting, Marakon, PA Consulting, Porsche Consulting, Schaffer Consulting, The RBL Group, and The Ready.

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.
