Deloitte
Consulting
LLP
 Company
Overview:
 Deloitte
is
the
consulting
arm
of
Deloitte
Touche
Tohmatsu,
one
of
the
big
four
 accounting
firms
(Deloitte
Touche
Tohmatsu,
2008).
Following
the
Enron
debacle,
 Deloitte
is
the
only
Big
Four
accounting
firms
that
kept
the
consulting
division
under
its
 wing
(BusinessWeek,
2007).

As
of
2006,
consulting
is
Deloitte’s
second‐largest
business
 in
the
U.S.,
generated
an
annual
revenue
of
$3billion.


 Deloitte
currently
offer
strategy‐consulting
services
on
market
strategy,
financial
 management,
merge
&
acquisition,
performance
improvement,
supply
chain
and
 technology
advisory
(Deloitte
Consulting
LLP,
2008).



 Consulting
Styles:
 There
is
one
notable
difference
in
the
methodology
Deloitte
deployed
in
its
consulting
 service.

In
2006,
Deloitte
acquired
DeepDeep
Methodology
developed
by
Andy
Boynton
 at
Boston
College
and
has
subsequently
applied
the
methodology
in
its
consulting
 services
(Deloitte
Consulting
LLP,
2006).

The
DeepDive
methodology
began
from
a
six‐ step
process
developed
in
Silicon
Valley
for
product
innovation
business
(Deloitte
 Consulting
LLP,
2006).

Currently,
Deloitte
has
deployed
DeepDive
methodology
as
a
 methodological
process
that
merged
brainstorming,
prototyping
and
feedback
together
 to
develop
solutions
for
business
challenges
(Deloitte
Consulting
LLP,
2006).

 Merits
and
De‐Merits:
 Deloitte
derived
its
strength
from
its
affiliation
with
a
strong
accounting
firm.

In
the
 post‐Enron
era,
the
M&A
market
demands
greater
amount
of
financial
due
diligence
 and
forensic
investigation
(BusinessWeek,
2007).

The
combined
strength
of
Deloitte
 Consulting
LLP
and
the
accounting
prowess
of
its
parent
company
can
deliver
one‐st...
