Current Trends and Issues

Consultants and their clients are in a constant state of flux as a result of changes in government legislation, globalization, new technology, evolving business trends, and many other factors. Consultants interact with clients via mobile technologies, social media, cloud computing, and collaborative software, and many clients expect consultants to be available around the clock. Businesses are implementing next-generation technologies such as mobility and cloud computing and advanced analytics software in an attempt to drive performance, and consulting firms must provide advice and “thought leadership” regarding these technologies. Personal skill requirements are also changing.
