PA Consulting Group, supported by FT Longitude , has been shortlisted for a Management Consulting Association Award in the category of ‘Best Use of Thought Leadership’ for PA’s Innovation as Unusual report.

This international study, which was commissioned by PA in 2016, is based on in-depth qualitative and quantitate research to better understand the specific challenges organisations face around innovation today. The report also identifies cross-sector insights and opportunities for companies to improve the way they can innovate.

FT Longitude  conducted the analysis through an international survey of 751 senior business and government executives exploring major changes in the way companies innovate.  The result was one of the most comprehensive studies ever untaken in this area and the most authoritative report of its kind.

Since its release, the report has been downloaded over 4,000 times and achieved high-quality, widespread media coverage across PA’s key target geographies.

The Management Consultancies Association (MCA) is the representative body for management consultancy firms in the UK and has been at the heart of the UK Consulting Industry since 1956.

The MCA Awards are now entering their 20th year and are the benchmark for quality within the consulting industry. They are the ideal way to demonstrate and recognise the value of consulting.  They also celebrate how clients and consultants working together achieve the best results.

The winners of the MCA awards will be announced on 27 April 2017.
