As we examine the drivers of change that will greatly impact the consulting industry going forward, one must analyze how to attract, source and retain talent. In today’s environment we are faced with new challenges which require us to rethink how we deliver messages about our firms, the value proposition of management consulting as a career choice and the necessity to continually enhance our capabilities to challenge and reward top performers.
In February and March 2013, AMCF and The Bloom Group surveyed 50 marketers, managing directors and other professionals from consulting firms on their web publishing strategies. A number of the participants are AMCF members.
We are pleased to share the research report with our findings:
