Just last month, Stern Value Management was recognized by Vault as one of the Top 50 management consulting firms for 2016. Though pleased with the outcome, SVM is already looking ahead to next year’s ranking. “While we recognize that we have made great strides over the past year, we won’t rest on our laurels,” says Martin Schwarz, Executive Vice President. “We’re already working on identifying how we will move up in the rankings next year.”
To achieve this goal, SVM’s Executive Committee designated a special project team to identify the firm’s top areas of improvement, and create an action plan for improving on those areas. The special project team has been working closely with the Executive Committee. As a result of the special project, the three key areas that SVM will focus on are formal training, innovation in the industry, and philanthropy.
