Management Consulting & Business Advisory Services, Including Knowledge Management


South Africa’s management consulting and business advisory industry has been under growing pressure since 2017. The industry has been rocked by revelations that numerous consulting firms, including several global market leaders, have facilitated and/or been complicit in irregular activities and misdeeds, including fraud, state capture and corruption. Revelations that consultants from several multinational firms were found to be complicit have rocked the industry. The consequences of these developments, consulting expenditure cutbacks and economic conditions have affected the traditionally lucrative industry. Some role players say that knowledge management is increasingly being regarded as a potential game-changer with the advent of the fourth industrial revolution and the internet of everything.


Mounting Pressure


National Treasury has issued directives to government departments and state-owned entities to reduce their reliance on the use of consultants, a practice which was previously widespread. At the same time, conventional consulting has been fundamentally changed by technology-driven disruption, requiring firms to incorporate digital tools to remain competitive. Technological advances also present various opportunities to the sector.
