Press release from 15.06.2021

TOP CONSULTANT competition puts consultant quality under the microscope using a customer survey on a scientific basis.

Meerbusch – Leap into the consulting elite:

starkpartners consulting GmbH has been awarded the TOP CONSULTANT seal 2021. This means that the consulting firm is once again one of the best consultants for medium-sized businesses in Germany and can therefore deservedly carry the seal from June 15!

For the 12th time, the nationwide TOP CONSULTANT competition examined on a scientific basis how well the participants advised and supported their medium-sized clients.

The basis of the competition is an extensive, analytical survey of various medium-sized companies that have previously worked with the participating consulting firms. The reference customers named by starkpartners consulting GmbH , for example, provided detailed information on both how professional the management consultants appeared and how satisfied they were with the consulting services and whether they would recommend starkpartners consulting GmbH to others. On behalf of compamedia, the Wissenschaftliche Gesellschaft für Management und Beratung (Scientific Society for Management and Consulting, WGMB for short) from Bonn conducted an empirical survey and put the participants to the test – the decisive factor here, according to WGMB, was “a customer-oriented, medium-sized business consulting service”.

Prof. Dr. Dietmar Fink, Professor of Management Consulting at Bonn-Rhein-Sieg University of Applied Sciences, heads the Scientific Society for Management and Consulting together with Bianka Knoblach.
