Impact: A New Chapter of Growth, Expertise, and Corporate Responsibility

Impact is a new chapter in the history of Wavestone, a new momentum. According to this plan, 3 objectives were associated for 2025:

  • Reach a new growth horizon, with a target revenue of €750m by 2025
  • Include 5 large non-French companies in the TOP 20 clients
  • Meet the highest standards in terms of non-financial performance, by positioning Wavestone in the top 5% of the best companies when it comes to CSR

3 pillars will be developed to ensure the success of Impact:

  • International and Growth: The firm's development priority from now on will be to accelerate the growth of its international activities and to capture new large international clients, in sustained growth, both French and more importantly non-French.
  • Expertise and Value: The firm will radically increase its investment in expertise and value. Wavestone intends to become one of the best training schools for consultants throughout their entire career. Wavestone will also develop its expertise in depth in order to provide its clients with even more innovation, forward thinking and thought leadership. 
  • The Positive Way: "The Positive Way" is the name of the value base on which Wavestone is founded: Client satisfaction and support for sustainable performance, Employee development and commitment, Responsibility and ethics, which make Wavestone a good corporate citizen, and Collective mindset, the most distinctive value of Wavestone in the consulting market. The firm will strive to cultivate these essential values in order to better meet the challenge of growth, acquisitions and international expansion, while remaining true to itself.
