Operations Management Consulting Sees Opportunity in New Growth Cycle

New Research Pegs Client Demands and the "Need for Speed"

PETERBOROUGH, NH -- (MARKET WIRE) -- November 29, 2006 -- Operations Management (OM) consultancies are benefiting from new sources of demand for specialized services according to new research from Kennedy Information. "Operations Management Consulting Marketplace 2006-2010" identifies that OM project priorities within the client "value chain" are shifting away from the mature technologies of the last five years including ERP, SCM, CRM and toward more knowledge-based initiatives.

The report confirms that traditional corporate hierarchies are giving way to networked structures linking highly specialized functions. Coupled with a new focus on innovation in R&D, product development, and client interaction, the trend is driving dramatic changes in the Operations Management (OM) consulting landscape to address clients' "need for speed" in responding to new business demands.

The report details the dynamics shaping the OM consulting landscape with market size and growth forecasts through 2010 broken out by geography, by 12 client industries, and by three OM service line sub-segments: Supply Chain Management; Innovation and Interaction; and Operations Advisory Services.

In addition, the report identifies, ranks and profiles leading OM consulting firms including A.T. Kearney, Accenture, Bain & Company, Booz Allen Hamilton, Boston Consulting Group, Capgemini, Celerant Consulting, Computer Sciences Corporation, Deloitte, IBM Global Business Services, McKinsey & Company, PA Consulting Group, PricewaterhouseCoopers, PRTM, and Roland Berger Strategy Consultants.
