20.04.2016 Best Management Consulting Firms in the USA 2016

Statista in partnership with Forbes Media LLC has named the Best Management Consulting Firms in the USA 2016


Which business consultancy is the best in its field? In cooperation with Forbes, Statista has determined the top specialists within an extensive survey for 15 core industries and 16 functional areas


New York, April 20th 2016 – Which consultancy is the perfect match for your company? With more than 50,000 different consultancy businesses in America it can be a time intensive and sophisticated process to identify the ideal partner for your specific business needs. To provide a solution, Statista and Forbes have identified 15 industries and 16 functional areas, in which partners and executives could make recommendations for consultancies. Self-recommendations were excluded. The recommendations for management consultancies in each industry and functional area were then counted and ranked.


The participants were able to recommend as many consultancies as they saw fit. According to the recommendations, the consultancies were rated with 3 different star-valuations (3 to 5 stars were achievable). Alongside some specialists, the big players like McKinsey, Deloitte or BCG are represented in almost every section. However, the ranking also holds surprises. For example, Kaiser Associates proved to be an insider tip with only 75 consultants working in the USA. The strategy consultancy has been awarded with 4 stars in 6 different categories.


The ranking is comprised exclusively of consultancies that have a sufficient number of recommendations; a mention is therefore positive and indicates a vote of confidence from the market. The ranking was created through an elaborate process. The quality of management consultancies that are not included in the list is not disputed.
