Deloitte named a leader in leadership development consulting services

17 October 2013 - Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu Limited (DTTL) announced today that Kennedy has named Deloitte a global leader in Leadership Development Consulting services in their Leadership Development Consulting Market Report 2013. 

Kennedy's Leadership Development Consulting Market report examines the strengths and weaknesses of the major providers including those from the strategy and operations, multi-services, and HR consulting segments. Additionally, the report examines the business, geographic, and industry drivers of client spending on leadership development consulting.

The interplay of these drivers is illustrated in case studies that underscore the challenges of scale and scope for these providers. The report notes "Deloitte differentiates on research-driven leadership consulting, a position strengthened by its recent acquisition of Bersin and Associates." 

Julian Hawkins, consulting leader at Deloitte Middle East, comments: "Deloitte's thought leadership and research, most notably that of Bersin by Deloitte, outpaces its peers in quantity and quality. Bersin's leadership development practice generates market-leading benchmarks, methodologies, and frameworks, including the leadership maturity model, that provide a compelling fact basis for designing effective solutions."

Key Findings

  • Deloitte named a Kennedy Vanguard Leader based on breadth and depth of capabilities, one of only two leaders shown as advancing.
  • Firms such as Deloitte, Mercer, and Korn/Ferry International are gaining ground as global providers in a market that historically has been dominated by DDI and Hay Group.
