Munich, May 24, 2018. KPS AG was once again ranked amongst the 10 largest management consultancies in Germany this year. The leading transformation partner for digitalization projects lies in 6th place in the recently published ranking produced by Lünendonk®, the market research company.
The top 10 management consultancies increased their revenues by 12.5% in 2017 and generated total revenues of around € 2 billion with over 8,100 employees. The major growth drivers – as in the previous years – were the good overall economic climate and customer demand for transformation.
“The consultancy business has been transformed by digitalization. The sector is increasingly specializing in big-data analytics and agile project implementation,” remarked Leonardo Musso, Executive Board member at KPS AG. “We are also benefitting from digitalization in all sectors and are constantly expanding our comprehensive range of consultation services. Our employees are experts in the transformation of end-to-end processes along the customer journey – in other words, approaching and aligning all processes in the company integrally and in a customer-oriented way. Innovation and taking advantage of the opportunities presented by digitalization in enterprise management as well as marketing and sales are the key factors here.
The consultancy firms expect a continuation of the growth trend in 2018 at the same level as in the previous year. To maintain the growth level, the companies are planning recruitment equivalent to around 21% of the total workforce. However, the lack of specialists remains a challenge, according to Lünendonk.
