Deloitte ranked number one consulting provider globally by revenue

Key findings:

• Kennedy recognises Deloitte as the largest organisation by a considerable margin, and highlights Deloitte’s growth strategy and go-to-market approach as factors contributing to the organisation’s success during a difficult economic climate.

• According to the report, Deloitte is a leader in management consulting with extensive capabilities and depth in strategy, operations management and human resources, as well as business advisory services and information technology consulting.

• The report also underscores Deloitte’s mantra—“business-led, technology-enabled”—as an accurate reflection of the position of the market.

David Owen, managing partner and head of Deloitte’s UK consulting practice, said: “The Kennedy report is a resounding recognition of our global consulting capability. It also reflects our position in the UK where Deloitte is the market leader and where we have built up a strong and well equipped practice which has real depth and breadth of capability. In particular our ability to blend strategic, business and technology expertise continues to provide us with a real differentiation when compared to any of our competitors.

“These capabilities enable the firm to take on large and complex challenges, ranging from supporting the London 2012 Olympic Games to the delivery of the BBC iPlayer. And that acts as a significant spur to attract the best talent.

“We are seeing particular demand from our clients in all areas relating to performance improvement - better effectiveness from their technology investments and improving the way they are organised: from how they go to market to increasing their competitiveness in tough markets. All of this in the context of increased regulatory change, the private sector coming out of a recessionary period and the public sector dealing with its own significant challenges.”

Deloitte’s UK consulting revenues were £459 million in financial year 2009/10. Its consulting practice employs 2,300 consultants.

Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu Limited CEO Jim Quigley said, “This recognition of Deloitte as the leader in consulting and advisory services reflects the unique expertise, insight, and passion Deloitte brings to its relationships with clients worldwide. Our organisation’s commitment to delivering exceptional client service is at the heart of how we succeed—and of who we are.”

Breadth of capabilities, geographic reach, and deep expertise

The report highlights a number of Deloitte’s strengths:

“Deloitte’s strategy is to use its breadth of services, geographic reach, and industry expertise to serve clients of all sizes with an exceptionally well-integrated perspective and with flexibility and pragmatism.”

“Deloitte’s key differentiation lies in the size and the critical mass it can bring to bear on client challenges from both within and outside its advisory practice and across industries and geographies.”

“The successful execution of Deloitte’s breadth of offerings and the application of its ‘one Deloitte’ approach depends on extraordinary diversity of experience among Deloitte’s member firms and among team members on client engagements.”

Multi-service capabilities

“Over the last five years, some firms have made a concerted effort to promote their multi-service capabilities, demonstrating that they would drive significant value for themselves and their clients. Deloitte stands out as a firm that has made a significant effort in this area, including marketing its broad and deep cross-service line capabilities to clients as its unique ‘multi-disciplinary approach’.”

Strategic investments

“Deloitte continues to make thoughtful investments to help drive its future opportunities. This includes: 1) making strategic acquisitions to bolster select practices; 2) continuing to enhance its global delivery model to remain competitive in implementation activities; and 3) investing in staff through the creation of learning centers such as the launch of Deloitte University, planned for 2011.”

“Kennedy’s report confirms that being a world-class consulting organisation requires more today than it has in the past,” says Ainar Aijala, DTTL Global Managing Partner, Consulting. “Clients have never been more focused on value or more sophisticated in their buying decisions. It’s no longer enough for a consultant to have a one- or even a two-dimensional view. Leading with a proven strategy and bringing a broad and deep array of capabilities to the table are crucial to solving clients’ increasingly complex issues.”
