NEW YORK, NY, USA, 1 March 2019—Deloitte has been named a leader in innovation consulting in Forrester’s recent report entitled The Forrester Wave™: Innovation Consulting Services Providers, Q4 2018. Deloitte is a leader based on current offering, strategy and market presence. 

Forrester’s 17-criteria evaluation of innovation consulting services providers “identified the eight most significant ones…and researched, analyzed, and scored them. The report shows how each provider measures up and helps CIOs make the right choice.”

The report also notes, “Businesses turn to innovation consulting services vendors to strengthen their own innovation capabilities. Yet, their main objective should not just be support for the implementation of an innovation initiative. Instead, the goal must be to strengthen their own competencies to drive sustainable innovation over the longer term.”

Additional findings in the Forrester report about Deloitte:

  • “Deloitte maintains a globally coherent innovation consulting offering. This global pitch is the main differentiating element of Deloitte’s innovation consulting offering. Moreover, what stands out in terms of Deloitte’s innovation consulting capabilities is the breadth of its innovation support services.”
  • “Deloitte pursues a centralized approach for innovation through a global, dedicated design and innovation practice. Deloitte helps clients understand where to focus their efforts, from developing their innovation strategy to identifying and prioritizing opportunity spaces. Deloitte’s Ambition Matrix identifies an approach to innovation portfolio management that helps organizations understand where they can play in given markets and how to win over customers and businesses.”
  • “Furthermore, Deloitte uses human-centered innovation techniques to guide the development and validation of new business concepts and a road map for delivery. This involves building, testing, piloting, and launching functional minimum viable products as well as scaling and operationalizing the new business and creating repeatable build capabilities. Bridge connects enterprises that want to tap into the external startup innovation ecosystem to build their business.”
  • “Deloitte’s innovation practice is tightly integrated with Deloitte’s consulting practice. This enables Deloitte to leverage its design and delivery capabilities as well as its strategy, analytics, and human capital practices. One of Deloitte’s reference customers for innovation consulting services told us that they valued Deloitte’s ability to bring together strategy consulting, technology support, and innovation advisory.”
