The best small and boutique management consulting firms in Germany

06 August 2018 Authored by Consultancy.eu

A new ranking by an analyst firm in Germany has identified the country’s best mid-sized, small and boutique management consulting firms.

With a value of around €30 billion, according to the BDU, the association for the German consulting industry, Germany houses Europe’s largest management consultancy market, ahead of the UK and France. While the largest share of the industry is in the hands of the big players – including the leading strategy consultancies McKinsey & Company, Boston Consulting Group and Bain & Company; the Big Four; Deloitte, EY, KPMG and PwC; and other large consultancies such as Accenture, BearingPoint and Capgemini Consulting, among others, the bulk of the number of firms in the market are boutique and small and mid-sized (SME) management consulting firms.

Of the thousands of SMEs and boutiques in the marketplace, a new survey has identified those firms that according to their clients stand out from the crowd. Conducted by German institute Top Consultants, the analysis looked at how hundreds of management consultancies perform on criteria such as professionalism, competence and customer satisfaction, leading to a list of Germany’s best boutique and SME management advisory firms across two categories: organisational consultancy and management consultancy.
