New York, 16 October 2013 — Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu Limited (DTTL) is pleased to announce that Kennedy has named Deloitte a global leader in Innovation Strategy and New Product Development Consulting in their recent report entitled Innovation Strategy & New Product Development Consulting 2013.
The report notes “Deloitte’s service offering in this space is among the broadest, ranging from high-level corporate strategy integration and portfolio management to deep product development process and related technology expertise.”
“The depth of innovation acumen, combined with scale, agility, and deep sector expertise enables Deloitte to serve clients with actionable insights,” says Jeff Watts, DTTL Global Leader, Strategy & Operations. “We believe these attributes put Deloitte in a unique position to help clients transform their businesses to meet the complexities and challenges of the global business environment. We are very pleased to be recognized by Kennedy for our continued investment and leadership in innovation strategy, as we believe it substantiates our focus on how we are serving clients.”
The report focuses on how companies are engaging consultants to help them create value by developing new products and services and devising new methods and processes that enable them to bring those products to markets faster, at less cost, and with better aligned performance. It focuses on how companies differentiate themselves in the markets they compete in – and in the extreme, the markets they create.
