For six years, the magazine brand eins and the statistics portal Statista have published an annual consulting industry report, whose highlights include the ‘Beste Berater’ awards. To ensure that the results are of the highest integrity, brand eins conducts a survey among experts in management consulting companies as well as top managers and executives in DAX, M-DAX, S-DAX and Tec-DAX companies. There’s no possibility of self-recommendation.
The ranking draws entirely on assessments based on actual and recent projects. The jury assesses services it has used itself, or which it is familiar with from day-to-day business. Dr. Jan Burgard regards this methodology as a filter, ensuring that only the best get through to the final round. According to the managing partner, “This award is especially prestigious in the consulting world, as it is mostly based on feedback from clients. With their direct experience, they are better placed to assess consulting work than any special jury.”
