PALO ALTO, Calif. (April 8, 2016) – Strategic Decisions Group was named a top boutique management consulting firm in Ivy Exec’s 2016 Top Consulting Firms rankings, according to a statement this week from Ivy Exec, a curated online community of consulting professionals.

Ivy Exec has ranked the top 30 large and top 20 boutique consulting firms in its annual survey, asking roughly 5,000 consultants from 100 global management consulting firms to rate their current and previous employers on leadership, culture, quality of work, compensation and prestige.

Among boutique firms, defined as those with fewer than 1,000 employees, SDG was ranked 10th overall, up from 13th in 2015. On the individual dimensions, SDG was ranked 8th for quality of work, 8th for culture, 13th for prestige, 14th for leadership, and 14th for compensation. Read more about SDG’s rankings here.

Last year, another consulting industry observer, Vault, named SDG to its list of top boutique consulting firms.

“It is gratifying to see this recognition from Ivy Exec and Vault that SDG is one of the best places to work in the management consulting industry,” said Mary Lea Kirven, managing director of SDG. “We have always competed with the top names in strategy consulting, both for talent and for clients. As a smaller, boutique firm focused on strategic decisions, we believe one of our advantages is our collegial and collaborative culture, which extends to our client engagements as well.”
