The rules of engagement have changed for consultants. As their clients embrace more Performance Management technologies, consultants realize that using Excel as their primary modeling and analytics tool isn’t enough. With increasing competition in a global environment, clients put more pressure on their Consultants to bring more value and deeper insights faster.

Stephen Page, the leading recruiter for the top-tier consulting firms worldwide along with River Logic’s VP of Strategy and former McKinsey consultant, Carlos Centurion, and VP of Partner Development and former Deloitte consultant, Philip Higginbotham, reveal recent survey results on Consultants and Technology show why the tipping point on consultants redefining the rules of engagement is now the turning point.

The results of this formal survey show what software tools are being used by today’s Consultant. Participants will hear what their colleagues had to say about software that makes a difference and what’s being used in addition to or instead of Excel. Key to these results is the discovery of software tools that advance the insights of Consultants and bring value to their Clients beyond the BI and BPM technology their clients have implemented.

Hundreds of pre-qualified colleagues were contacted to weigh in on this relevant topic.

Key points:
  • What Consultants have to say about the new era of Integrated Business Planning
  • Why the Consultant industry should look to technology to advance insights and added value for their clients
  • A demonstration of how technology is leveraged for client benefit
