You may not want to admit it—but every so often a project fails. That is, it doesn’t quite hit the profitability mark. And maybe it’s more often than you’d like to admit. Research suggests as many as one-third of projects don’t meet the firm’s own profitability metrics. And even more alarming, nearly two-thirds of firms lack the transparency to effectively measure profitability benchmarks. How is that even possible?

Even though technology continues to help streamline almost all aspects of consulting firm management, it doesn’t always make it all the way to the bottom line of project success and failure. Too often, firm leaders are left in the dark as to why a specific project didn’t deliver. Was it mismanaged? Were the margins wrong from the get-go? Were the wrong people doing the wrong work? Or maybe the project wasn’t worth doing in the first place? Knowing the answers to these questions after an engagement—or better yet, before—is essential to a firm’s success.

To explore this topic, plan now to join us online May 9 and uncover answers to such critical questions as:
  • Why do so many consulting projects fail to hit the mark?
  • What role should technology play in your organization?
  • What tools and tactics should you have in place at your firm?
  • How can you determine a successful project before it begins?
  • What steps should your firm be taking right now for success?

PLUS—get answers to your own questions by industry experts during the live Q&A session immediately following the presentation.

Hosted by Consulting Publisher and Editor-in-Chief Joe Kornik, this webinar promises a 360-degree view of the topic from industry experts and leading consultancies.

This event is offered free of charge to consulting professionals courtesy of our sponsor, Deltek.
