Abstract

All professionals are under pressure to implement change. They face increased competition and external regulations. Their clients have become more demanding and critical. Quality work is at a premium with senior people moving between organisations. Professional service firms must find a way to respond positively to these pressures. Success stems from developing the ability to take control and make change happen. This book is based on current research into successful professionals organisations. It develops the five key elements of the Model for Success. These include operational management, strategic leadership, and client and people development.
