Executive Summary

We had to choose a sector and three companies to analyze their recruitment and selection practices. This would help us to understand better the hiring methods of that particular sector.

It would also help us to identify all the theoretical concepts that we learned and see and understand how that is practically applied in industry.

Sector chosen:  Consulting

Companies chosen:  1. McKinsey

                                     2. Bain and Company

                                     3. Boston Consulting Group

1 - Introduction

1.1 - Background:

Consulting is one of the sectors in India that is growing and is expected to be a Rs. 27000 Crores industry by 2020, as per The Associated Chambers of Commerce and Industry of India. Presently, there are approx 6000 consulting firms in India, with Delhi holding a market share of 25.7%.

The fast growth is largely because of improved investment activities, relaxation in FDI restrictions, entry of many global players in the Indian market, low-cost structure, and capabilities in areas like management, IT, telecommunication, civil engineering, and power.

The major strengths of the industry are professional competence, low-cost structure, high acceptability, quick learning flexibility, strong personal skills, attentive approach and overall business understanding. Despite limitations, like limited presence in abroad due to lack of strengthened market expertise, lack of strategic tie-ups, low-quality assurance, low brand equity, the consulting sector in India is responding to the ever-changing dynamic needs of the clients and seeking inventions to meet their future goals.

The biggest challenge that consulting firms are facing is that many consulting firms still believe outsourcing restrains their growth in the outsourced regions.

To summarize, Consulting is growing leaps and bounds in our country and what it needs is a strong framework of Indian industry which can be achieved by nurturing talent, embracing innovation and enhancing and improving the consulting skills.
