NEW YORK, June 11, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- For the fifth consecutive year, Gartner has ranked Deloitte member firms (Deloitte) as the number one global consulting organization based on 2014 market share revenue in their report Market Share Analysis: Consulting Services Worldwide, 2014. Gartner defines Consulting as Business and IT Consulting and includes revenue from Deloitte Consulting practices and advisory businesses globally.
"Developing actionable strategies and delivering on them with clients is critical to being a leader in this industry – but it isn't enough to be the number one consulting organization," said Jim Moffatt, Deloitte Global Consulting Leader. "Drawing on the breadth and depth of our network capabilities; investing the time to understand clients' needs; and collaborating with them to create value – based on their definition of value – is what we feel has set Deloitte apart for five years running."
The report notes, "The worldwide consulting service market grew 6.1 percent to $125.2 billion in 2014 from $118.1 billion in 2013. The top 10 consulting service providers combined grew at a fast pace of 6.8 percent compared with the overall market."
"The world has never been as complex, dynamic and uncertain as it is today and the pace of change will only increase," said Moffatt. "Deloitte is helping clients with their most complex challenges – how to grow globally; how to innovate; how to integrate technology and strategy; how to attract, develop and retain talent – so they can make bold decisions with confidence."
