Deloitte named a global leader in Strategy Business Consulting by IDC MarketScape

News Release

New York, NY, USA, 10 March 2017– Deloitte announced today that International Data Corporation (IDC) has named it as a global leader in Strategy Business Consulting in their report entitled IDC MarketScape: Worldwide Strategy Business Consulting Services 2016 Vendor Assessment¹. The IDC MarketScape recognizes Deloitte as a leader based on capabilities and strategies.

Specifically, for Deloitte, the report noted, “Overall, clients worldwide consider Deloitte to be the most capable firm at challenging corporate culture and delivering value-creating innovation.”

IDC MarketScape is a quantitative and qualitative assessment of the characteristics that explain a vendor's success in the marketplace and help anticipate the vendor's ascendancy. The report assesses the capability and business strategy of the leading business consulting firms.

"The need for strategic consulting has extended ‘down,’ below the rarified air of the C-suite, to become the urgent requirement at the group, division, and department levels. At this level, the urgency for action remains high, and the span of control is more compact — allowing for greater flexibility and agility in decision making," said Cushing Anderson, Program Vice President, Project-Based Services research at IDC.
