We measure.

The success of consultants. The success of ideas. The success in practice.

WHAT WE DO

Since 1998 we have been evaluating the leading consulting firms in Germany – management consultants such as McKinsey, Bain and BCG, IT consultants such as Accenture, IBM and Capgemini as well as accounting firms such as PwC, EY, Deloitte and KPMG. In our studies we analyse their expertise, in our rankings we show their strengths and weaknesses. On this basis, we support consultants and their clients as strategic advisors and as sources of thought leadership.

Would you like to evaluate the consulting services of your company, measure the satisfaction of your customers or set up a client feedback system? Benefit from our experience of more than 20 years at the side of large and medium-sized management consultants, auditors and law firms. You can reach our study team at evaluation@wgmb.org or by telephone at +49 30 3001 4930 34.

We publish.

For consultants. For managers. For students. For you.

WHAT WE PUT ON PAPER

We regularly publish the findings and insights that we gain in the course of our studies in text books and scientific journals, as well as in articles and commentaries in the daily, specialist and business press.

We do research.

On management. On consulting. On management consulting.

WHAT WE EXPLORE

Our research focuses on two areas: The first is management research, in which we critically question and empirically examine the influence and significance of various factors on contemporary management practice. On the other hand, we address the numerous paradigm shifts to which the consulting market and its protagonists are subjected in the context of globalization, digitalization, consolidation, and professionalization.

WHO WE ARE

The Wissenschaftliche Gesellschaft für Management und Beratung is a privately funded research institute. We analyze current management and consulting topics and evaluate the competencies of consulting companies. The core of our work is the sound handling of figures, data and facts.

In all our activities, we are committed to strict scientific standards. We build on solid quantitative methods and supplement them with modern qualitative approaches from economics, psychology and social sciences. In this way, we want to contribute to a better understanding of management and consulting processes.
