In the uncertain economy we’ve seen over the last several years, most consulting firms seem content to carve out whatever growth they can and move on to fight another day.
While it’s been necessary to recalibrate the revenue realities of the profession, there are those firms that defy the odds—and that’s the case of the 2012 Seven Small Jewels. They all, in one way or another, stood out from the rest—like the three firms that more than doubled revenue in 2011.
Nearly 150 firms threw their hat in the ring for a chance to be called one of the Seven Small Jewels in 2012. The stories of the seven winning firms are highlighted over the next 10 pages. There are some differences among the firms, for sure.
But their similarities are most striking. They all provide outstanding client service. That’s a given. But take note how these firms treat their own people, their development, and their firm’s culture. That story is worth telling. And we do.
