Strategy consultant, heal thyself

Interesting little article in FT about the risk of mid-tier strategy consulting firms either not making it or staying “in a funk”.

strategy consultants in a hole

Some titbits that caught my eye:

  • A global consultancy firm needs annual revenues of at least $2bn both to pay its partners and to invest enough. This translates into ~$1.7-$2.2m per partner in pay and investments. This would disqualify firms like Booz and Roland Berger.
  • Two decades ago, 70 per cent of McKinsey’s revenues were from strategy and corporate finance but most now flow from hands-on work on risk, operations and marketing. This is not surprising. Clients value people that actually know something.
