ALM Intelligence Finds That The Boston Consulting Group Has the Deepest Capabilities and Highest Client Impact in the Industry; Firm Earns Highest Overall Score Across Nine Key Capabilities
BOSTON—The Boston Consulting Group (BCG) is the world’s best overall provider of organization strategy consulting, according to a new report by ALM Intelligence, a leading publisher of consulting-market research.
In its latest study of the organization strategy consulting market, ALM found that BCG has the deepest capabilities and the highest client impact of all of the 28 firms studied. In addition, ALM rated BCG either very strong or strong in each of nine key capabilities—an accomplishment no other firm can claim. The nine capabilities are needs assessment, external market insight, internal client insight, strategy, operating system, management system, project management, client capability development, and enablement tools.
Calling BCG one of a small number of market leaders “unique in their ability to independently execute end-to-end projects across the full spectrum of client contexts,” the report, The ALM Vanguard, says that the firm “combines a nuanced, inside-out perspective on how the holistic organizational context determines behaviors with a strategist’s eye for which particular levers will yield outcomes that matter. These attributes pay off particularly well for clients contemplating significant strategic changes that necessitate reconceiving wholesale ways of working, notably including agile teaming. Also distinctive about this firm is its cascaded—as opposed to big bang—approach to organizational change.”
Grant Freeland, a BCG senior partner who serves as the global leader of the firm’s People & Organization practice, said that BCG’s approach is rooted in the firm’s strategy heritage and a deep tradition of thought leadership. “Our unique ability to link people and organization issues with the strategic agenda of the C-suite is a critical part of our differentiation,” he said. “At its core, our approach focuses on changing people’s behavior and instilling new ways of working together.”
