Prophet recognized in the strategy, brand marketing, digital transformation and growth specialties

In its inaugural year, Forbes named Prophet to its list of America’s Best Management Consulting Firms 2016. The list, which recognizes the top 1% of management consultancies, names Prophet among the largest and most recognizable consulting firms.

“We’re honored to be included on Forbes’ list of the top management consulting firms,” said Michael Dunn, Chairman and CEO of Prophet. “This recognition highlights our unique combination of insight, strategy, creativity and pragmatism that helps companies build more relevant brands and grow better businesses.”

To determine the list, Forbes collaborated with Statista, an online statistics provider, to conduct two online surveys. The first surveyed partners and project managers from management consultancies, and the second went to clients who have worked with management consultancies in the last four years.

In addition to creating the full list of the top consultancies, Forbes evaluated 15 industries and 16 functional areas to determine the firms that exceled in these areas. Prophet earned a four star rating in the marketing, brand and pricing specialty. It was also recognized by its peers for its digital transformation expertise, and by clients for strategy and its innovation, growth and new business models.

“Prophet helps our clients solve their most pressing business challenges by delivering a full range of capabilities based on our core competencies: brand and experience, digital transformation and growth acceleration,” said Dunn. “We are honored that our clients and peers have recognized our expertise in these areas. It is a true testament to our strong, multi-disciplinary team who deliver best-in-class work to our clients every day.”

Chan Suh, chief digital officer at Prophet, added, “Prophet has invested in expanding our digital transformation practice, and we’re now on pace to deliver more digital work for clients than ever before. It’s gratifying to have Forbes and the industry recognize how we’ve grown our services and expertise in this important area.”

To be considered for Forbes’ list, companies had to fall into one of the following categories: “classic” management consultancy firms, IT consultancies, advisory branches of auditing firms, or consulting branches of agencies.
