NEW YORK, Oct. 13, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Source Information Services, a leading provider of research on the management consulting market, has named Deloitte as No. 1 in thought leadership quality in its recent "White Space Quality Report." This marks Deloitte's first No. 1 ranking and fifth consecutive top five ranking in the report since its inception in 2010. In the semi-annual report, Deloitte was top-ranked among more than 20 of the world's leading consulting organizations. Of note are Deloitte's high marks on thought leadership differentiation, specifically addressing unique, emerging topics and identifying innovative solutions to key business issues.
According to Source, Deloitte's in-depth coverage of technology's impact on the retail industry and regulatory environment were key areas of differentiation for the firm and demonstrated its ability to provide actionable insights on emerging trends. Deloitte has produced a number of related reports, including "The Retail Transformation" and "The Regulator of Tomorrow."
"Deloitte's ascent up our rankings table to the coveted No. 1 spot reflects a concerted effort behind the scenes to consistently deliver high impact thought leadership. These efforts are particularly evident on Deloitte University Press, a channel for insightful and engaging content on topics that are very relevant to senior executives, and sustained in-depth campaigns, such as the 3D opportunity, showcasing Deloitte's expertise," said Rachel Ainsworth, head of thought leadership strategies and solutions, Source Information Services.
"From our ongoing program of surveys and interviews, we know that the quality of Deloitte's content is already being recognized among buyers of consulting services – as well as by other firms who are keen to follow their example," continued Ainsworth.
