What's Inside

The global professional services market is expected to reach $9.6 trillion by 2026. That means a lot of opportunity — and a lot of competition. Companies utilize professional services to get ahead and stay ahead in the acceleration economy. But with tons of competition, how can professional services firms not only survive but thrive enough to successfully guide companies through digital transformation?

To achieve this goal, professional services organizations must attract the best talent, align skills with projects, and accurately quote and deliver. Our guidebook on professional services organizations helps them do so by offering valuable insights into such topics as resource management; service line expansion; customer relationship management; and relevant technology adoption.

Our group of practitioner-analysts, including Janet Schijns, Joanna MartinezTony Uphoff, and Kenny Mullican, draw upon their diverse backgrounds as CMOs, operations professionals, and CEOs, to enable professional services organizations to future forecast with precision and to overall be more effective, efficient, and successful.
