Support Corporate Growth Objectives
When it comes to effective resource management in the professional services industry, success is judged on a host of criteria. How effectively, for example, is consultants’ time being managed and billed for specific projects? Can you give clients fast access to the skills they need, when and where they need them? And is resource and capacity planning properly supporting your corporate growth objectives?
