Rise of the virtual firm: Long-term virtual work has become a reality. Many companies are opting to make remote work part of normal workspaces and increase the use of freelance or contingent resources to enable a flexible workforce.

Disruptive market entrants: Technology-driven automation lower the cost to deliver services and transform the way clients consume services. Services that can now be performed more efficiently, digitally, virtually, and with full automation at a significantly lower cost.

Strategies for Professional Services Companies to Run as Intelligent Enterprises

Outcome-based engagements: Clients are increasingly focused on the business outcome of an engagement rather than the effort involved, and they are negotiating prices and relationships accordingly.

Talent networks: Digitalization of talent has made new business models possible by identifying, classifying, and attracting talent on an as-needed basis outside the boundaries of a firm.

Knowledge as a service: Professional services firms are realizing that they have valuable expertise and content that can benefit their customers beyond the typical face-to-face engagement model. Innovative service firms continue to productize their service lines, create knowledge “vaults,” and monetize their institutional expertise to deliver a highly resilient revenue stream.

Enabling Talent Networks: From Strategic Planning to Intelligent Resource Management

Timely engagement staffing with the right resources and visibility into the staffing pipeline has been a known challenge for the professional services industry.

  • It automatically collects the “digital exhaust” of employees and even contingent workers;
  • It builds a skills profile as they perform their daily jobs, pulling keywords and relationships from enterprise systems such as collaboration hubs, project management, and learning and career planning systems. Employees could further extend their “storefront” with additional skills, interests, and resumes;
  • As people are staffed to projects and deliver work, this technology can learn which matches were more (or less) successful and keep on learning to improve future searches, helping resource managers find the ideal talent at the click of a button;
