Trends by Function: Strategy and Internal Consulting Groups

Each year, Business Talent Group releases the High-End Independent Talent Report, looking across industries and business functions to analyze how business leaders deploy top independent talent to fill critical skill, expertise, and leadership gaps. Here are the key strategy and internal consulting group trends for 2022.

As companies balance their growth ambitions with continuing uncertainty and risk, strategy and ICG leaders are finding independent talent to be a key source of insights across a wide array of initiatives. This year, they’re turning to on-demand experts to harness data effectively, assess fast-moving opportunities, and develop strategies for product launches, marketing, process transformations, and more.
