Our proprietary research methodology comprises four components:
The research output for any analysis is derived predominantly from primary research. Data is obtained through a centralized effort, with teams of analysts collecting, assessing, fact-checking, and refreshing baseline information on leading consultancies and consulting markets. This information populates an extensive knowledge base of consulting providers, widely regarded as among the most comprehensive in the world.
Working collaboratively, analysts narrow their research to the most discrete and pertinent intersection of consulting service/industry/geography. The experience and knowledge of our analyst team are critical to the success of these research endeavors. Directors and associate directors average more than 10 years of consulting and/or analyst experience, with an emphasis on professional services. Junior analysts typically bring an average of five years of consulting and/or analyst experience. The group’s long-term relationships with consulting clients and industry leaders are based on trust and respect. ALM Intelligence’s fundamental goal is to deliver objective assessments and insightful viewpoints on management, financial and IT consulting markets.
