Rethinking Value in Professional Services

Mainstream #consulting is caught too much into timesheets and the performance of work rather than value. The client has the same access to information as you. Where is the innovation which is going to help your client on the next value venture? The answer is in #research.

The next practice delivery models in consulting will entail that consultants start thinking as entrepreneurs and value creators rather than the usual status quo. Think beyond binaries, look at registers of evidence beyond the top 10 searches on google. Read more, talk to real experts in academia who work on a single topic for their entire careers. Accept failure and embrace intellectual humility to crack open the anti intellectual bent in professional services.

Co create, rather than PowerPoint preach. The MacBook and Armani swag goes only so far. Consultants are going in for practitioners. The disrupters are being disrupted.
