Content of the study

Which consultants have the greatest expertise in the areas of digitization, strategic planning, mergers & acquisitions, post-merger integration, organization and leadership, marketing and sales, innovation, operations management, turnaround and restructuring, and business technology? In which of these areas do clients have the largest budgets? Which consultants are particularly present in which industries? Who has the broadest knowledge of the market, who has the best implementation skills? Who works best in a team, who has the best methodical, technical and analytical skills? Who has the most satisfied customers? Questions like these are answered in detail in the study. In clear charts and rankings, in which exclusively the best five consultants in each category are listed – because we want to show which consultants are rated particularly highly, but we don’t want to discredit anyone.
