  • »Breaking the Cycle of Volatility and Supply Chain Performance Deterioration

    The great moderation that lasted from the mid-1980s through 2007 was characterized by low volatility and strong gains in business performance that combined in the fashion of a virtuous cycle. The supply chain was a significant beneficiary and source of these gains.
  • »Disruption, Financial Services and the Buffalo Bills
    The year was 1996: Alanis Morissette and the Smashing Pumpkins dominated radio—we still listened to radio back then—while your Internet 1.0 experience began when your dial-up modem screeched for 20 seconds and then connected you to your AOL account. You had mail! It was in that year that Episode 7 of the fourth season of the popular SciFi drama The X-Files aired, during which a conspiracy was laid bare in a secret meeting by powerful men.
  • »It’s a Floorwax... It’s a Dessert Topping... Actually, it’s Both!
    There are few sure things in the world. One might cite death and taxes, but only slightly down the list is the inevitable answer a Big Four consultant provides to the question “What is your firm’s strength?” Everything, of course.
  • »Show Me The Money
    Management consulting is a cash business. Now salaries and bonuses within the consulting industry are certainly not at the stratospheric levels enjoyed by their kindred brethren in investment banking. But consultants generally do realize much-better-than-average wages relative to their counterparts in the corporate world.
  • »Will ‘Knowledge Workers’ (Consultants) Be Replaced by Machines? It’s Possible
    The management consulting industry to date has been largely unscathed by the wave of technological change. However, there are signs that digital technologies are now beginning to disrupt the management consulting industry as well, with potentially deep and far-reaching consequences.
  • »A Force in Consumer Banking
    Banks have been stepping up their customer satisfaction game in recent years against the typical market forces at play. The pace of change has been head-spinning for an industry not well known for its swift response to customers.

Consultants in the Crosshairs: Protecting Your Team From Headhunters
While Building Their Engagement

Wednesday, April 4, 2012 at 1:00 pm (ET)
Register Now – for FREE!
Talent was easier to retain during the recession and all signs indicate that your best consultants are now at risk. In fact, unemployment for all college grads above age 25 is just 4.3 percent and this includes all majors, so what must it be for sharp business thinkers and technicians?

And as most of us have learned, the best way your competitors can find new people is to poach your best talent.
With that in mind, plan now to join us online April 4—at no cost—and uncover answers to such critical questions as:
  • Who has more power over retention—managers or executives?
  • Are you converting turnover—and disengagement—into dollars?
  • What is the very best tactic for managers to better retain and engage their teams?
PLUS—get answers to your own questions during the live question and answer session immediately following the presentation.
Hosted by Consulting Publisher and Editor-in-Chief Joe Kornik, this Webinar promises a 360-degree view of retention strategies and tactics. Consulting magazine data shows an alarmingly high share of consultants plan to leave their firm, especially now that the economy is improving. But what can you do about it?
Join Dick Finnegan, CEO of C-Suite Analytics, for a solution-based discussion of how to retain and engage your top performers. He will present data from Google, Fortune Magazine’s Top Places to Work, and other sources to reach conclusions that might surprise you about the very best tactics to take.
Finnegan will also add solutions he’s used to improve retention at the CIA and across China. Bloomberg BusinessWeek has noted Finnegan offers “fresh thinking for solving the turnover problem in any economy” and Dick will share specific tactics for improving engagement and retention in the consulting industry.
Don’t miss out on this chance to position your firm for success!
This event is offered free of charge to consulting professionals. We invite you to register now and to forward this invitation to others in your organization.
