Forbes: Adopt is one of the best management consulting firms in America



The only company from Arizona to make the list

PHOENIX, Ariz, April 5, 2022 -- Adopt Technologies today announced that the company has been recognized on the Forbes list of America's Best Management Consulting Firms in 2022, the third consecutive year that it has been honored with this achievement. This prestigious award is presented by Forbes and Statista Inc., the statistics portal and industry ranking provider. The awards can currently be viewed on the Forbes website. It is the only company from Arizona to make the list.

America's Best Management Consulting Firms list comprises the best consultancies based on results of an online, two-step methodology including expert and client surveys.

Step 1 – Surveys

Expert Survey: Over 7,500 executives and partners from more than 1,000 management consulting firms nationwide were invited to make recommendations for consultancies in 16 industries and 16 functional areas. Self-recommendations were not accepted or included in the final results.

Client Survey: Approximately 1,300 senior executives who have collaborated with a management consultancy in the past four years were surveyed. Respondents were asked which industries and functional areas they retained a consulting firm and then recommended a firm compiled from the expert survey list.

Step 2 – Rankings

The top 218 of the most recommended management consulting firms were sorted into three star classes based on the data derived from the two surveys.

Commenting on the recognition, Brett Helgeson, Chief Executive Officer and President of Adopt Technologies, said:

"Being recognized on the Forbes list of America's Best Management Consulting Firms is an incredible honor, and receiving this recognition for the third consecutive year is extremely rewarding. Our team is diligently focused on consistently improving our acumen and service delivery in order to effectively guide and support our clients in achieving their tactical and strategic technology initiatives. We strive to help our clients succeed while protecting them at the highest level possible from the threats that abound in the cyber threat landscape. This recognition is further validation that we remain on the right path in our pursuit of being both a destination employer and IT Partner."

Adopt Technologies appears on the IT Strategy list alongside industry giants like Bain, IBM, Cisco, KPMG, Oracle, Dell, Grant Thornton, and Booze Allen Hamilton, which has existed since 1914.

After the Covid-19 pandemic upended the business world, the role of management consultants responsible for guiding organizations through disruption is more important than ever before. While the industry was not immune to the economic effects of the crisis—its market size shrinking 8% to $236.2 billion in 2020, according to IBISWorld—it's on the rebound, expected to grow 2.3% to $241.6 billion this year. Now, the challenge for companies becomes identifying those consultancies best equipped to help them navigate the transformation ahead.

Forbes partnered with market research company Statista to simplify this process by producing our annual ranking of America's best management consulting firms. The list, compiled by surveying more than 7,500 partners and executives of management consultancies, as well as 1,000-plus senior executives who worked with such firms over the last four years, is divided into 16 sectors—from aerospace and defense to financial institutions—and 16 functional areas—including strategy, sustainability and digital transformation.
