De 200 beste adviesbureaus in Duitsland volgens Brand Eins

14 april 2021 Consultancy.nl 10 min. leestijd

Wat zijn de beste Duitse adviesbureaus om mee te werken volgens leidinggevenden en consultants? Een overzicht van de top-200 leidende adviesbureaus bij onze oosterburen.

Met een marktwaarde van meer dan €34 miljard is de Duitse adviesmarkt een van de vijf grootste adviesmarkten ter wereld. Volgens gegevens van de Duitse branchevereniging voor adviesbureaus – de BDU – telt Duitsland meer dan 4.000 ‘toonaangevende’ adviesbureaus – spelers met een omzet van meer dan €1 miljoen. Daarvan weten er 175 een omzet van meer dan €50 miljoen te genereren.

Deze consultancybureaus adviseren en ondersteunen hun klanten in alle denkbare sectoren en expertisegebieden. Voor bestuurders van organisaties op zoek naar een advies- of implementatiepartner is de keuze dan ook enorm. Maar welke bureaus onderscheiden zich het beste in hun expertisegebied of sector?

Om dat uit te zoeken bundelden het Duitse zakenmagazine Brand Eins en onderzoeksbureau Statista de krachten. Samen peilden ze de meningen van meer dan 3.500 leidinggevenden en consultants. Die brachten hun stem uit om te bepalen welke kantoren zich tot ‘beste adviesbureaus van Duitsland’ mogen kronen.

Over de ranking

Het is alweer de achtste keer dat Brand Eins en Statista de jaarlijkse ranglijst hebben uitgebracht. De onderzoekers hebben voor deze editie leidinggevenden en senior managers gevraagd  om een aanbevelingsscore (op een 6-punts schaal) te geven aan de adviesorganisaties met wie zij hebben samengewerkt. Ook werden consultants gevraagd om hun collega’s een score toe te kennen (jezelf aanbevelen was niet toegestaan).

De uitkomsten binnen deze twee dimensies zijn uiteindelijk samengevoegd en op basis daarvan hebben de onderzoekers de ranglijst met ‘beste Duitse adviesbureaus’ opgesteld.
