What Is a Leaders Matrix?

A Leaders Matrix is an interactive graph that shows how service providers compare against each other in a particular market or location, such as app development companies or app developers in New York.

A Clutch Leaders Matrix maps service providers with the highest Clutch Rank in an individual market. Leaders Matrices are interactive graphs that show where companies fall across four quadrants:

  • Market Leaders (top right)
  • Proven Leaders (top left)
  • Niche Leaders (bottom right)
  • Emerging Leaders (bottom left)

Focus, on the x-axis, accounts for a company’s specialization within a certain industry.

Ability to Deliver, on the y-axis, considers three criteria:

  1. Client references and reviews
  2. Work experience
  3. Market presence and industry recognitions
