There’s an old beer commercial where two sides square off about the beer’s best attribute: “Tastes Great!” vs. “Less Filling!” Well, consulting’s version of that same type of stand off might be “People!” vs. “Technology!” It’s an age-old question that spans more than just professional services, of course—what’s the proper blend of people and technology in an organization?

It’s the consulting conundrum and leaders have struggled with it for a while now, but particularly of late as new technologies become ubiquitous to work and life. Firm leaders have a finite amount of money and resources and where they invest is one of the biggest keys, ultimately, to success. Often, it comes down to a decision on people vs. technology—better to have the systems in place to support future growth or the people in place to make sure the firm is growing in the first place.

The answer, much like in that beer ad, could be both. People and Technology don’t have to be mutually exclusive. Firms that have cracked the code on successfully balancing the two are the ones that will win in the end. And this is lip service: there are steps you should be taking right now to make sure your firm is properly positioned for maximum profitability. In other words, it should taste great… and be less filling.

To explore this topic, plan now to join us online October 31 and uncover answers to such critical questions as:

  • How can your firm crack the code on the consulting conundrum?
  • What’s the proper blend of people vs. technology investment?
  • Why and where do most firms fall short?
  • Which comes firm—the people or the technology?
  • 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, Oracle Netsuite.
