Strategy Consulting Marketplace

From Kennedy Info:

Almost half of the Strategy consulting market is consumed by just 18 players, each with Strategy practices of over $200 million in revenue. This attests to the global nature of Strategy today. The majority of this market segment is made up of Strategy and Operations centric firms; however, multi-service consulting (MSC) firms also control a large share of the space. In effect, virtually all MSC firms have Strategy practices larger than $200 million. Firms at the head of the market have international activities that spread across the full range of strategy services. They need this combination of wide geographic scope and depth of strategy services portfolio to build scale within the Strategy practice.

The projects that are driving significant penetration and growth: Outsourcing Advisory, Operational Transformation, Strategic Innovation, Strategic Risk Management, Innovation Capability Building, Customer ‘Insight’ Analytics, Value Based Management.

And these are the top strategy consulting firms, while most are well known names, others are in the list thanks to their niche specialisation like TPI in the outsourcing market. Haven't ever heard of Marakon Associates or Prophet. Must do some research on them
