KEENE, N.H. -- May 09, 2013

Kennedy Consulting Research & Advisory, the leader in market analysis on the
consulting profession, announces the launch of Geographic Consulting Market
Index 2013: Quarter 1, a new study that delivers global geographic consulting
market data each quarter, with particular attention in Q1 to the markets in
the United States and Canada — across the five major consulting service lines

  *Financial Consulting
  *Healthcare Consulting
  *Human Resources (HR)
  *Information Technology (IT)
  *Strategy & Operations

“As the economy recovers, we’re seeing strong demand in the U.S. for financial
services, healthcare, natural resources and power, and manufacturing
engagements,” according to Lasse Pitkaeniemi, Project Lead and Associate
Director. “Similar activities dominate among consultants in Canada as well —
but with slightly different tasks.”

The exclusive research quantifies the market being driven by these and other
trends, providing current and forecasted growth through the expert, trusted
perspective of the Kennedy analyst team — and their findings deliver the only
data and market intelligence consulting providers need to make more informed,
strategic decisions around:

  *Engaging clients
  *Determining geographic presence
  *Evaluating service emphasis
  *Developing talent
  *Pursuing emerging growth opportunities

Pitkaeniemi continues, “As we like to say, it’s the numbers without the noise.
Timely selections of geographic market index studies are slated for release
every quarter this year, and offer an in-depth, uncluttered look at current
and forecasted growth in key regions.” In addition, Geographic Consulting
Market Index 2013: Quarter 1 includes Kennedy’s much anticipated rankings and
related growth rates of the 10 largest consulting practices (by revenue) in
North America including:

  *Accenture; Booz Allen Hamilton; Deloitte; Ernst & Young; IBM; KPMG;
    McKinsey & Company; Mercer; PwC; and Towers Watson
