On PwC’s leadership qualities, Tomek Jankowski Senior Analyst, Management Consulting Research at ALM and author of the report stated, “PwC has put deep thought into the due diligence and valuation portions of the deal process and has created an up-front, fully holistic approach to this part of the process, both to help clients better understand their options as well as avoid issues later. The focus throughout is on quality of outcome. PwC has also developed an effective complement of proprietary technology in TAS”.
