Why do people turn to IBM business consulting?

They are trying to imagine what their future holds. They are looking for a unique capacity to conceptualize opportunities, analyze developments, and overcome grand challenges.

Our Strategy & Analytics (S&A) consultants help our clients achieve competitive advantage by framing industry opportunities and challenges into specific strategic options; formulating actionable strategies that intersect business, analytics and technology as well as accelerating implementation through tailored operations and change programs. In addition to serving clients around the world, a dedicated team of practitioners works to apply our best strategic thinking to IBM itself; the Strategy & Change Internal Practice (SCIP) drives transformation and supports enduring change throughout the IBM corporation.
