Global management consulting firm A.T. Kearney today announced it has been named to The Black Book of Outsourcing's prestigious 2008 "Top Outsourcing Advisors" list.

A.T. Kearney is ranked the number two "Corporate Globalization Consultant" and is listed as a top 10 "Full Service Outsourcing/Offshoring Advisor" in The Black Book of Outsourcing's 60-page report released this week.

"This is great recognition of our work and expertise in the outsourcing consulting space, and we look forward to being ranked even higher next year," said Arjun Sethi, Partner, A.T. Kearney.

A.T. Kearney has a strong team of outsourcing and offshoring experts led by Partner and Transformation Practice Leader, Marcy Beitle. Most recently, the firm has published business papers on offshoring best practices, near-shoring strategy and culture change management. A.T. Kearney also publishes an annual Global Services Location Index, a report that identifies and ranks the world's top offshoring locations.

"We work with clients to help them understand the cost/benefit of a full transformation and map to their objectives to determine the appropriate depth of custom transformation," Beitle said. "We guide clients throughout the process, from the initial strategy through ongoing management to ensure the businesses achieve their desired results. To be listed among the best at delivering on that goal is an honour."

For eight weeks each spring, Brown-Wilson Group, which authors The Black Book of Outsourcing (Wiley Publishers), surveys outsourcing users and C-level officers to gain a buy-side decision-maker perspective on the global services industry. After a stringent external auditing process, the client-experience responses of nearly 24,000 buyer executives determined the 2008 Black Book of Outsourcing rankings. First developed in 2004, the annual study is recognized as the single measure and independent industry standard for customer satisfaction in the global services industry.

According to Scott Wilson, Partner, Brown-Wilson Group and co-author of The Black Book of Outsourcing, "A.T. Kearney ranked among the top advisors due to its continuous focus on customer satisfaction and quality outcomes while successfully engaging and managing outsourcing relationships."
