RESEARCH STRATEGY

As requested, we looked at the reports the top management consulting firms in the United States have recently published on the subject of disruption. We did this by searching for reports on disruption within the websites of the following well-known management consulting firms: ATKearney, Accenture, Bain, Booz Allen Hamilton, BCG, Deloitte, Ernst & Young, IBM, Infosys, KPMG, McKinsey, and PwC, FTI Consulting, Alvarez & Marsal, Oliver Wyman, Gartner, and Forrester. The first 12 of these management consulting firms were identified by Forbes as the best management consulting firms in the United States in 2019. Several non-industry-specific reports with 'disruption' or 'disrupt' in the title have been published in the past 24 months, but all are global in scope and only a few discuss key disruptions in detail. Most of the reports were about how companies adapt or can adapt to disruption. We selected the reports that offer the greatest amount of information when it comes to major disruptions in the United States, and we ensured that as many management consulting firms as possible are represented.
