Starcount is one of the UK’s Leading Management Consultancies 2019

Quality and professionalism form the foundation of Starcount’s success and we are delighted to be acknowledged for these values by major players in the UK consultancy landscape. We are honoured to have been featured in the Financial Times’ “UK’s Leading Management Consultancies 2019.”

The research and data, compiled in collaboration with data provider Statista and its methodology, was based on two surveys; one among peers (partners and executives from consultancies) and one among their clients.

Peer survey:

The list of management consultancy partners and executives was primarily based on research on consultancies’ websites. The sample size consisted of up to 4,900 partners and executives of management consultancies in the UK and ran from June 4th to June 30th 2018. Once more, 15 sectors and 14 consulting services were identified, in which partners and executives could make recommendations. Expanding on last year’s survey, respondents were given the opportunity to say whom they would refrain from recommending. An overall score was given to each consultancy based on the number of positive recommendations and negative responses they received. Self-recommendations were excluded from the evaluation.

Client survey:

“An online survey was conducted among more than 1,000 senior executives, who had previously used the services of management consultancies”

Following the peer survey, an online survey was conducted among more than 1,000 senior executives, who had previously used the services of management consultancies. This field phase lasted from July 16th to August 13th, 2018. Respondents were asked to indicate the sectors or consulting services in which they had collaborated with a management consultancy in the past four years. They were then asked to recommend consultancies by using an autofill list or adding them. Again participants could also indicate which consultancies they would not recommend. The recommendations for management consultancies in each sector, and relevant consulting service, were then counted. The number of recommendations was then calculated, taking into account the proportion of positive and negative responses. Reputation is typically built and established over several years and the list aims to reflect that longevity.


“These accolades fill us with pride and are further evidence of the value our products and people provide”

In each sector and consulting service, management consultancies were sorted into the following classes:

  • Gold (very frequently recommended)
  • Silver (frequently recommended)
  • Bronze (recommended)

Having been recognised in the Bronze class, despite being relative newcomers to the industry, we’ll continue to push the boundaries of data analytics and insights and look forward to enhancing our growing reputation amongst peers and clients in the years to come.  Corporate recognitions aren’t just about a pat on the back or a quick ego boost; these accolades fill us with pride and are further evidence of the value our products and people provide in constantly putting our clients first!
