The “Hidden Champions of the Consulting Market”, launched this year for the eighth time since 2003, is the oldest seal of quality for consultants in Germany and undoubtedly WGMB’s most popular study – with regularly high coverage and attention in the market.

About a quarter of the almost 40 billion euros in turnover on the German consulting market is generated by 25 of the roughly 16,000 companies – led by the big three: McKinsey, Boston Consulting Group and Bain & Company. But when it comes to the quality of consulting, specialised consultants sometimes outperform the big players. The magazine Capital reports on the new edition of our study, which identifies the top specialists.
