Topic: What is the State of Consulting Market Today? Examining the Opportunities and Trends that will Drive Growth in the Future
With the worst of the economic downturn in the rear-view mirror, consulting firms, like many companies, are turning their attention back to growth. Buoyed by pent-up client demand for consulting services, firms are cautiously optimistic about the current and future state of the marketplace. However, unlike the high-growth periods that followed previous downturns, growth this year and in the near future will remain modest and there's still some plenty of uncertainty to go around. Against this uncertainty, there are plenty of positive signs and pockets of s strong opportunity.
