MCA Management Awards: MT teams up with the MCA again to applaud the best in management consultancy

Now in their 11th year, the Management Consultancies Association's Awards have become the criterion by which the business consultancy industry measures the effectiveness of its activities. Category by category, they are keenly contested by the brightest and most innovative advisory firms in Britain, working in both the private and public sectors.

Management consultants operate at the heart of British business, influencing the strategic and purchasing decisions of the largest organisations in the UK. Together, they make up a sector now worth nearly £12 billion a year, creating value with their expertise in an array of specialist areas. It is what these leading business thinkers bring to the economy that the MCA Awards are designed to celebrate.

This year, the most successful consultancy projects in 10 main categories will be chosen from the shortlist below. A Platinum award celebrates the best overall consultancy/client achievement, while tasty side-dishes include special awards for Best Small Firm, Best Private Sector Project and Best Public Sector Project. Such are the elements of the most prestigious and authoritative prizes in their field.

The winners will be announced at an exclusive dinner at the London Hilton, Park Lane on 30 April, 2007. A full report will appear in MT's May edition.
