UK Q4: 70% of UK consultancies expect growth in new business wins in next quarter
The UK's Management Consultancies Association (MCA) has just released its latest quarterly survey of member firms' performance and expectations for the coming quarter. The results show sustained growth in management consultancy revenues, albeit single-digit growth, over the last year. The sector has now enjoyed uninterrupted growth since Q4 2002, with like-for-like revenues increasing 6.6% in the last twelve months.

Encouragingly the outlook going into 2006 looks rosy. 70% of MCA member firms are predicting an increase in new business over the next quarter. And reflecting the ever higher utilisation rates being achieved in the industry, 80% of member firms expect an increase in their headcount of consultants employed over the next three months.

Commenting on the figures, Nick Owen, MCA Vice-President 2005/6 and Managing Partner at Deloitte, said:

"Although there has been limited growth over the last quarter across all sub-sectors, the sustained growth within the consulting sector over the past two and a half years has provided further evidence of the value consultants add, and the positive effect they are making on their clients’ business, both in terms of improved productivity and increased revenues."

Although MCA members are predicting further growth, the MCA survey also showed that the sector’s confidence in the UK’s economic performance underwent a dramatic decline in Quarter 3, with nearly two thirds of members (58 per cent) ‘not confident’ or ‘not at all confident’ in the UK’s economic performance. This is the first dramatic change in confidence for over four years (since the first quarter of 2001) and sounds a cautionary note to an otherwise upbeat quarterly report.

Continued growth reported for Consultancy sector

Management Consultancies Association (MCA) Q3 2005 survey shows continuing growth for UK consulting firms with 70 per cent of MCA member firms predicting an increase in new business over the next quarter…

Statistics released today by the Management Consultancies Association (MCA), the trade association for UK based consulting firms, demonstrate the sector is continuing to experience sustained growth. The sector has now continued to grow since Quarter 4 of 2002, with underlying1 revenues increasing to £1,886million. This represents a 6.6 per cent increase in the last twelve months on a like for like basis.

The consulting sector is also predicting more growth in the immediate term with 80 per cent of MCA members (which represent approximately 65 per cent of the UK consulting industry2) expecting an increase in the consultants employed, and 70 per cent expecting an increase in volume of total new orders over the next three months.

Commenting on the figures, Nick Owen, MCA Vice-President 2005/6 and Managing Partner at Deloitte, said: "Although there has been limited growth over the last quarter across all sub-sectors, the sustained growth within the consulting sector over the past two and a half years has provided further evidence of the value consultants add, and the positive effect they are making on their clients’ business, both in terms of improved productivity and increased revenues."

Decline in confidence in the UK’s economic performance

Although MCA members are predicting further growth, the MCA survey also showed that the sector’s confidence in the UK’s economic performance underwent a dramatic decline in Quarter 3, with nearly two thirds of members (58 per cent) ‘not confident’ or ‘not at all confident’ in the UK’s economic performance. This is the first dramatic change in confidence for over four years (since the first quarter of 2001).
