The 2012 Executive Outlook

Cover It appears we’ve finally turned the corner, but is it full speed ahead?

Is this momentum? It sure feels like it. There’s simply no denying this fact: based on our findings—the numbers look good. Really good. If there’s a sentiment that sums up the way consulting firm leaders are feeling as we head into 2012, it’s “optimistic.” When we asked firm leaders to look out over the next 12 months and give us a pulse check on the profession, each one responded with optimism… and a bit of caution thrown in for good measure.

And who can blame them? There’s still an awful lot of uncertainly in the market, particularly in Europe. But still, all in all, firm leaders are feeling pretty good about new prospects in the New Year. Of course, some much needed economic stability and a little revenue can have that effect.
