Through specialised offerings, PwC exhibits broadest capabilities among the leaders
PwC was named a leader in the ALM Vanguard of Product Development Operations Consulting. Firms were assessed, “in terms of their relative ability to create impact for their clients.”
Nathan Simon, author of the report, notes, “PwC exhibits the broadest capabilities among the leaders, owing to its specialized Management Engineers and Strategy& affiliates, the operations backbone of its PRTM heritage, IT resources and partnerships, and the geographic and sector footprints of its network members. This combination pays particular dividends in streamlining and coordinating global R&D assets.”
The report further highlights PwC as Best in Class for operating systems, stating, “With its Management Engineers affiliate, operations breadth, and PLM capabilities, PwC uniquely brings together the data-intensive information processing, engineering methods, and process improvement methodologies that make up a development operating system.”
Simon considers, “PwC directs its consulting approach at two needs. One is the shift from products to software and services, which drives companies to change their R&D methods as well as the talent, culture, and customer interactions required to execute their product development operations. The other is the globalization of R&D, which demands more decentralized operating models animated by different ways of communicating and coordinating activities.”
