PwC rated as an ALM Vanguard Leader for Organisation Strategy Consulting

Organisation strategy consulting centres on balancing what it takes to execute today’s strategy with resilience to changing circumstances. This always comes down to what French political scientist, Raymond Aron, called the “supreme virtue” – that is, the right mix of “steadfastness and flexibility.” 

Organisation Strategy Consulting

PwC has been named as one of the best firms worldwide, at helping clients improve operational efficiency and mobilise resources to execute strategy, according to ALM Intelligence, a leading research organisation. 

The ALM report names PwC as ‘best in class’ for Internal Client Insight.  They highlight that, “PwC’s overarching focus on differentiating capabilities, operator disposition and distinctive methods for measuring behaviours, enables PwC to isolate the root causes of clients’ organisational performance.” 

Commenting on achieving this positioning, Mark Strom, Management Consulting Leader, PwC, said: 

"It is a great achievement to have been recognised by ALM for our work in the consultant strategy space. We have differentiated ourselves by helping our clients understand the ways in which emerging markets and technology will demand new forms of organisational structure, so they can access the most important strategy opportunities.”

ALM recognised PwC’s joint approach with Strategy&, part of its consulting practice. Together they help clients adapt to address four fundamental challenges: balancing scale, harnessing technology, responding to industry disruption and overcoming talent supply constraints. Cutting across these challenges is the underlying need to adapt to new ways of working in digitalise business models. 

Nathan Simon, Senior Director, Lead for Strategy & Operations Consulting Research, commented: 

“PwC is the practical strategist par excellence. Inspired by the Capabilities-Driven Strategy perspective developed by its Strategy& affiliate, PwC’s service delivery always drives to the short list of differentiating capabilities to focus improvements and make their application eminently practical. The firm’s inside-out, capabilities-focused perspective, operations prowess, and behavioral insights from the Katzenbach Center further contribute to its ability to help clients embed effective behaviors deep into operational processes.”
