I presume this starts applying at leadership levels like SM, director, partner etc? Maybe manager?

I’m going to have to go with sales my friend

Depends on level - junior levels, it’s all about utilization. As you move higher in the ranks, the model shifts to successful delivery and then sales. If you are Partner minus 1 or 2 levels, it’s def sales

Sales. If a senior consultant sold a big project, that would help them get promoted more than being 120% utilized.

Sales. Not just working on proposals, but originating a deal from cradle to grave.
