Strategy Engineers has been honoured for the fourth time in a row as “Best Consultants”. The prestigious ranking is published by leading German business magazine “brand eins” and Statista and assesses consultancies in Germany. Based on a consulting approach leveraging profound industry knowledge, Strategy Engineers has established well on the German consulting market. This is reflected in the repeated award as “Best Consultants” in the categories “automotive & supplier”, “machinery & plant engineering”, and “operations management”. In addition, the consultancy with offices in Munich, Hamburg and Shanghai has been honoured as one of the leading consultancies in the category “strategy development” for the first time.
“We celebrated our fifth anniversary just last year and have now been awarded the title “Best Consultants” for the fourth time. This is a great honour for us and acknowledges our specialized consulting approach”, summarises Dr. Albert Neumann, Managing Director at Strategy Engineers. “The four distinctions in our core competencies reflect how we succeed in creating tangible value for our clients and that our brand is increasingly recognised by other consultancies as well.” This conclusion is substantiated by Dr. Friedrich Schwandt, responsible for the “Best Consultants” ranking at Statista, who points out that “our rankings show, which consultancies made their mark on the market and were able to convince with performance”.
Following the guiding question “Who is the right choice for you?”, brand eins takes the perspective of highly talented candidates looking for the “right” consultancy to choose in this year’s edition of the ranking. Their hypothesis is that the generation Y is no longer in search for the name of a renowned consultancy on their CVs but increasingly seeks meaningful occupations and the opportunity to continually develop themselves. To these applicants, Strategy Engineers offers an attractive package as a specialised consultancy providing a uniquely integrated consulting experience combining management consulting and technological expertise for clearly defined target industries. How strong this offering and the brand Strategy Engineers have developed not only shows in the excellent client feedback the consultants receive in their projects, but also in the way Strategy Engineers appeals to highly qualified candidates with the strong will to initiate sustainable change.
“We attach particular importance to support our clients in our joint projects as partners with an entrepreneurial mindset. This is how we develop tailored product strategies, define effective technology profiles and create efficient organisational structures and processes to enable, lead and stabilise sustainable change”, emphasises Christian Koehler, Partner at Strategy Engineers. “The positive feedback we are receiving from our clients manifests itself in the awards as “Best Consultants” we have now been honoured with. To be recommended personally is one of the greatest honours we can achieve as a consultancy.”
The results of the „Best Consultants“ ranking published by brand eins and Statista are based on a two-fold survey: for the colleague evaluation, a total of 1,795 partners and project managers in German consultancies have provided their recommendations for the 16 consulting services investigated, whereas for the client evaluation, more than 1,500 executives from small, medium, and large companies provided feedback on projects they were supported in by consultancies. Building on this data, the “Best Consultants” were identified among the more than 15,000 companies named – with a remarkable result for Strategy Engineers as a young strategy consultancy with strong technological expertise. Besides classic consultancies also IT-consultancies, consulting branches of auditors and agencies, as well as in-house consulting firms are included in the survey.
