London: 27 different management consulting firms have been shortlisted for The MCA (Management Consultancies Association) 2012 Awards.

The annual MCA Awards, organised in association with The Times newspaper, celebrate outstanding client-consultancy partnerships and projects, as well as the achievements of individual consultants. The 19 different award categories, plus two overall awards, the Platinum Award and The Times Award for Best Client-Consultant Relationship, are judged by a panel of high profile and independent judges; the 2012 panel includes Anna Mallet, controller of business strategy, BBC, Timothy Morris, professor of management studies, Oxford University, and Simon Walker, director general, Institute of Directors.

Alan Leaman, Chief Executive of the MCA said, "The MCA Awards are the industry's benchmark for quality and excellence. All of the shortlisted entries show how clients and their consultancies create value for the British economy.

"The awards evening in April will be a showcase for the best performers in the private and public sectors — all of them supported by consulting of the highest quality."
