MCA ANNUAL INDUSTRY REPORT 2019
Every year the MCA collects key data from our members that enables us to produce a comprehensive assessment of the performance of the consulting sector in the UK.
The MCA’s Annual Industry Report 2019 provides an unrivalled assessment of the performance of the leading consulting ﬁrms in the UK which are part of the trade body the MCA. This short summary version contains headline ﬁndings and commentary from the report including overall and sector speciﬁc growth.
The true value of the report lies in the validity and authority of its data source – the MCA membership. There is no comparable piece of research that draws on data from such a wide variety of ﬁrms, from the Big 4 to successful small and medium-sized practices.
Please note, the report is free for all existing MCA members, but can be purchased by organisations and individuals outside of the association.
“Despite a year of economic and political uncertainty, the management consultancy sector has continued to enjoy positive growth, outpacing the rest of growth in the UK economy as organisations have relied on consultants to drive technology transformation in their organisations. However, we should not be complacent. For the UK to remain a global leader in this area, and to drive innovation and productivity throughout our country, the government should pursue a Brexit outcome that secures positive economic growth and enables businesses to trade as freely as possible overseas. Talk of no deal Brexit undermines business conﬁdence and should be avoided at all costs but businesses should continue to prepare as much as they can for the October deadline and the possibility of a no deal outcome.”
