Deloitte Ranks 2nd in Strategy Consulting
Kennedy’s Strategy Consulting Marketplace 2010-2013: Key Trends, Profiles and Forecasts has ranked global consulting and accounting firm Deloitte as the number two Global Strategy Consulting provider.
Deloitte emerged last month as the top accounting firm based on the fee income report released by the International Accounting Bulletin’s for the fiscal year 2010, superseding PricewaterhouseCoopers with a gap of $9 million after recording a fee income of $26.578 billion against $26.569 billion.
Kennedy’s recognition was based on a company’s strategy consulting capabilities as well as perspective on client trends, emerging issues, and client expectations pertaining to strategy consulting. In the case of Deloitte, Kennedy used as a basis its breadth of capabilities and its 2009 aggregate member firm revenue of US$2.2 billion.
Jeff Watts, Global Strategy and Operations Leader, Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu Limited, said he recognized the complex issues facing business leaders at present, which require them to bridge the gap between vision and execution.
Watts believed what “sets apart” Deloitte from the other accounting firms is its “ability to deliver insights that help clients realize tangible, significant, and enduring value.”
Kennedy recognized Deloitte as the “leading Strategy Consulting Practice in North America and Latin America,” “second-largest Strategy Consulting Practice in Asia Pacific,” and the “third-largest Strategy Consulting Practice in EMEA,” all based on the firm’s revenue for the fiscal year 2009.
The other citations acknowledged Deloitte’s global “Leading Marketing and Branding Strategy capability,” Strategic Planning, Organizational Strategy, and Financial Strategy.
Deloitte was also recognized for its Pricing and Profitability management and customer service, including its “breadth of geographic coverage.”
Kennedy noted that Deloitte’s application of analytics from strategy through ITC gives it “a unique position and advantage with clients that are seeking to apply the value to analytics throughout their entire business.”
