The MCA’s 2020 Annual Industry Report contains the most comprehensive and authoritative data and analysis on the consulting industry.
The UK consulting sector has experienced another year of growth according to the latest independent survey conducted by Savanta and, despite the impact of COVID-19 on businesses across the UK, consulting companies have stabilised their pipeline of projects and some firms are experiencing growth according to the Management Consultancies Association.
While the impact on firms and activity varied depending on size of firm, sector specialisms, portfolio of clients and the stage in the cycle of project work, consultants have been supporting clients both in the private and public sector during these challenging times assisting with crisis planning, supplier risk management, digital business delivery models and scenario planning.
Support has ranged from working with the NHS on virtual appointments, building infrastructure for new hospitals and assessing the impact of social distancing on patient treatment to moving whole call centres remotely for insurance firms and banks. Firms are expecting to see increased demand as organisations reassess their business models in the next 6 to 12 months with an increased focus on digital transformation, analytics, infrastructure and risk management across all sectors.
