About the Forbes | Statista survey
Forbes has recognized Wavestone, a business and digital consulting firm, as one of the “World’s Best Management Consulting Firms 2022”. The annual ranking is a go-to resource for business leaders to evaluate when they need help selecting a trusted advisor. Wavestone’s inclusion among this year’s top management consulting firms is a testament to its success delivering a winning mix of extensive hands-on experience, powerful analytical skills, and creative problem-solving to address clients’ most critical transformations.
To determine the list, Forbes and Statista conducted an independent evaluation of thousands of multinational management consultancies across 13 industries and 14 functional areas, in the United States, Germany, France, the United Kingdom, Switzerland, and Japan. These firms were evaluated based on survey results of peers, including partners and executives from the management consultancies, as well as recommendations from clients to identify the world’s best. To make it to this year’s list, global consulting companies were assessed on their ability to adapt and remain competitive during the COVID-19 pandemic, while also evolving to better provide services to their client’s changing needs. They were ranked according: to five stars for « very frequently recommended », four stars for “frequently recommended”, and three stars for “recommended”.
