Forbes ranks Insight Sourcing Group in its annual list of America’s Best Management Consulting Firms

ATLANTA, GeorgiaApril 20, 2016 — Forbes has once again named Insight Sourcing Group as one of America’s Best Management Consulting Firms, an annual list ranking management consultancies that provide cross-sector business with the best guidance.  Clients ranked Insight Sourcing Group high in several functional areas and industry sectors including Operations, Supply Chain Management, and Chemicals / Pharmaceuticals.

To compile this list of America’s Best Management Consulting Firms, Forbes collaborated with online statistics provider Statista. To be considered for this list, companies had to fall into one of the following categories: “classic” management consultancy firms, IT consultancies, advisory branches of auditing firms, and consulting branches of agencies.

Firms were sourced for consideration through lists of associations, consulting directories, competitions, and company databases, as well as through the PR and marketing departments of 50 large management consulting firms.

The survey of 1,316 management consultancy clients was conducted between January 21 and February 4, 2016. Executives participating in this survey were asked to recommend consultancies on a list falling within industries and functional areas in which they have worked with a consultancy in the last four years.

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.
