PwC with Strategy& named a Leader in IDC MarketScape on Worldwide Strategy Consulting

Regarded as most capable firm at implementing changes and innovations that produce results. 
PwC with Strategy& has been named a Leader in the IDC MarketScape: Worldwide Strategy Business Consulting Services 2016 Vendor Assessment. According to the IDC MarketScape, strategy consulting is defined as those services which “assist an executive with defining a vision and goals for the business and acquiring and aligning resources to reach the objectives of the business.” The report also finds the nature of strategy consulting delivery is changing — the solution development phase is becoming more iterative, more collaborative, and more rapid, resulting in more creative solutions and greater stakeholder buy-in.

Leslie H. Moeller, Strategy& Global Leader said: “This recognition from the IDC MarketScape is a great confirmation of both our legacy of developing bold ideas to help clients solve their toughest problems, and the strong worldwide capabilities we now bring as part of PwC to turn those ideas into action and create lasting impact. Strategy must be connected to execution, and PwC with Strategy& is best positioned to deliver that.”

The report goes on to say that PwC with Strategy& is regarded among business consulting clients as the most capable firm overall at helping them implement changes and innovations that produce results. For strategy consulting, PwC with Strategy& is viewed by clients as performing better than many peers in the areas of identifying options for growth and supporting business change across client organizations.

According to the IDC MarketScape, Strategy& is delivering on the emerging demand for strategy through execution services with over 3,000 strategy consultants working around the globe, making it one of the world’s largest teams that focuses solely on strategy consulting. In 2016, PwC with Strategy& is reinforcing its position as the strategy through execution services provider with a new business strategy book published by Harvard Business Review titled Strategy That Works: How Winning Companies Close the Strategy-to-Execution Gap.

Commenting on achieving this status, Miles Everson, Global Advisory Chairman, said: “We are delighted to have been recognised as a Leader in this IDC MarketScape. Our global presence combined with local knowledge of individual markets and sectors mean we can help our clients move strategically through a global landscape of rapid change, from strategy through execution.”
