The IDC MarketScape report states that “PwC is well regarded worldwide by business consulting customers that view it as overall the most capable firm at helping them improve operational efficiency, at understanding the unique needs of their business, and at leveraging local and global staff appropriately.”
“Being able to capture value from digital is at the top of every CEO’s strategic agenda, and to do that, they have to go beyond just digitizing their business – they have to reimagine it,” said Christopher Vollmer, partner and global managing director, Strategy& Digital Services. “We are helping leaders around the world every day to build difference-making digital capabilities that will help drive success today and well into the future. I’m thrilled that IDC recognizes that Strategy& and PwC are delivering on this promise together, from strategy all the way through execution.”
