Industries > Business Services
Business and professional services organizations have become a critical part of the landscape over the last three decades, offering business process outsourcing, staffing and other expert outsourced services on either a temporary or permanent basis. These firms offer professional advice, creative ideas, experienced counsel and even interim executive leadership and support.
Traditional challenges of growth and capital development often dictate the M&A and financing strategies of these organizations. In addition, many are management-owned and operated, relying on key senior leaders for management and business development as well as project execution.
The most insightful leaders focus on their firms’ institutional character. Issues such as staffing leverage, operating models, compensation programs and succession planning are also key. Understanding the core activities of each business, the roles played by their leaders, and how clients are served in a competitive market are essential to a successful strategy.
