Management consulting was an estimated $71.2 billion industry in the United States in 2016, according to analytics organisation Statista, and the attention is only flourishing larger.
But how many of the some-more than 600,000 consultants in the country are actually assisting the companies profitable them big bucks to urge potency and profitability?
Forbes teamed with Statista to establish the top consulting firms in the country. They staid on an unranked list of 234, highlighting those that stood out. A Forbes representative told Business Insider the list of highlighted firms is not ranked since the group behind the list suspicion it would be astray to equally magnitude firms that were so opposite opposite their specializations and industries.
The top firms, however, perceived the top series of “very frequently recommended” ratings from the polls that Forbes and Statista conducted of some-more than 8,000 comparison consultants and some-more than 1,000 comparison clients. The polls totalled any firm’s work opposite 32 sectors, trimming from financial to oil and gas, and with work regarding to authorised issues and mergers and acquisitions.
Participants could not suggest their own firms. Last year’s results were also factored in, but were weighted to be reduction critical than this year’s responses.
The “Big Three” major government consulting firms — McKinsey, BCG, and Bain — all done the highlight list, and the consulting branches of 3 of the “Big Four” major accounting firms — Deloitte, PwC, and KPMG — also done the list of many recommended.
An unranked list of nine standouts is below, and you can find the list of all 234 at Forbes.
