The Future of Consulting is Agile
What Does it Mean to be an Agile Org?
The consulting organization of the future might be many things – it might be a teal organization, a responsive organization, or agile at scale. But whatever principles the organization adheres to, the businesses that succeed in the coming years will be able to move quickly around organizational bottlenecks, making decisions as close to their customers as possible. Those will be the keys to retaining top talent and meeting new and unique customer demands.
This can be a daunting transformation, but businesses don’t need to take it on alone. Kimble PSA is proven to increase organizational agility, empowering people throughout a services organization to make better decisions that improve business performance. Our solution puts valuable insights into the hands of services professionals, guiding them towards actions that keep customers satisfied.
Why Businesses Are Undergoing Change
Three Steps to Creating Agility
In the modern world, your organization is only likely to survive and thrive if you do a great job for your customers and employees. An agile organization focuses on these complementary goals. While the term has its origin in the world of software development, it is now used as shorthand to identify a mindset.
In a crowded market, with new, disruptive competitors appearing constantly, it is harder than ever to get and keep customers. Expectations have increased. Consulting organization leaders who participated in a survey undertaken for Kimble agreed that they feel under pressure to meet increased demands from existing customers. Almost four in five reported that clients are making new demands on their consulting business, with the same number citing digital transformation as the driver of these demands.
This eBook proposes solutions to three common problems organizations face in the digital age: decision-making bottlenecks, a lack of agreed metrics, and the failure to innovate effectively.
