Which consultants are most bullish about their firm and their industry? Pre-COVID, it was consultants who work in the MBB. That has changed for 2021, as Clearview Healthcare Partners soared to #1, with a near perfect 9.925 score. Blue Matter, which ranked #21 for Outlook last year, raced all the way up to #3, thanks to a .41 score increase. BCG, last year's #1, actually increased its score to no avail. It ranks 2nd, but still ahead of Bain and McKinsey whose scores both slumped a bit compared to the previous year.
