1. Category Analysis/Selection

The Consulting Magazine team reviews current categories and emerging topics to ensure the categories selected honor the most meaningful and industry-leading achievements and projects. Our awards are aimed at honoring the best the profession has to offer and those individuals and organizations who are taking the industry to the next level. We set requirements for detailed data, metrics and examples that ensure firms are moving the needle and can prove it!

2. Ensuring A Diverse Slate of Entrants

ALM/Consulting Magazine works to ensure its recognition awards honor the absolute best the profession has to offer, and the only way to do that is to ensure we are receiving submissions from nominees from an array of backgrounds and locations.

3. Judging Process

Consulting Magazine’s Director Michael Webb oversees the overall submission process, working with senior leaders at ALM/Consulting Magazine and guest judges to ensure due attention to the category criteria. Lists or rankings are typically revealed two months prior to the date of the related awards ceremony.

4. Winners Selected

Out of hundreds of submissions, only a small percentage are selected as honorees. These winners are honored at an awards ceremony meant to not only highlight their achievements but offer inspiration to the next generation of leaders.
