Does Accenture Strategy have the best wlb of strategy oriented practices? Agnostic of who does real 'strategy'. Thinking MBB, OW, ATK, S&,Monitor, Parthenon, Alix as the comparisons.

Did not mean to leak LEK out, but I don't think theyll win here 🤔

I’m always genuinely curious how people can make these comparisons. At most people work at 1-2 of these firms in a career. I’ve worked everywhere from 40-80 a week here at Kearney depending on partner team and project scope.

Technology Strategy out of Chicago. My inpression is that select sub-practices in Strategy such as our M&A sub-practice have more demanding hours, but most of Strategy has relatively good WLB

I don't think acn strategy is that comparable to the other firms. they're more ops focused than say LEK or Parthenon

What are defining as Ops? MBB, Kearney, Alix and S& all do lots operations work (supply chain, manufacturing and procurement) work
