The State of Consulting
We all know change is constant and in recent years it appears that the rate of change has increased exponentially. These changes have happened for many reasons. The impact of the Internet has changed cost of communication, cost of acquiring information as well as marginalizing the impact of geography. We will discuss the current state of consulting as it has been impacted by these changes.
We will explore three important perspectives:
- How is the consulting environment changing?
- Market growth
- Firm size
- What do clients want?
- What new skills are needed to differentiate?
Looking forward your joining in the conversation!
