Insight Sourcing Group named one of America’s best consulting firms for the 2nd straight year

ATLANTA, GeorgiaMay 3, 2017 — For the second straight year, Forbes has named Insight Sourcing Group as one of America’s best consulting firms in its annual ranking of the Best Management Consulting Firms for 2017.

Clients ranked Insight Sourcing Group high in several functional areas and industry sectors including:

    • Energy & Environment
    • Supply Chain Management
    • Travel, Transport, & Logistics
    • Internet, Media, & Entertainment
    • Operations

To create this ranking, Forbes and Statista (one of the leading statistics companies) ran two waves of online surveys. First, it used information from trade organizations, consulting directories and other sources to build a list of more than 7,000 consulting-firm partners. It invited those partners to an online questionnaire, inquiring which industries they worked in and which consulting firms they held in high regard (excluding their own). A total of 1,207 partners completed the survey in November and December of 2016. The effort produced a long list of consultancies in 32 business categories, ranging from oil and gas to human resources.

Next, Statista used a market research firm to find and survey 1,100 business executives who had worked with the consultancies on the list. This “client survey” asked the executives which industries they worked in, and then prompted them to recommend the best consulting companies in those sectors. 1,100 executives filled out the survey this past January. Statista then identified the firms that received a disproportionately high number of recommendations in each category.

In each industry and functional area, consultancies were then sorted into starred categories according to the number of total recommendations received from colleagues and clients. Consultancies are alphabetized within each starred category. Those with very few recommendations were excluded from the list.
