Deloitte logoFor the fifth consecutive year, Gartner has ranked Deloitte as the number one global consulting organisation 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.

Julian Hawkins, partner and Consulting leader at Deloitte Middle East, said, “We are delighted to be named the number 1 consulting organization for the fifth consecutive year. However, what we believe is really important is that we are helping our clients and creating real value for them.

“We believe this is achieved by investing the time to understand their needs, drawing on the breadth and depth of our network capabilities and developing actionable strategies and delivering on them with clients”.

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 Hawkins. “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.”
