The global financial crisis has abated, but many industries are recovering slowly. Business consulting plays an essential role in helping enterprises adapt to the three dominant business strategies. It helps firms retrench with their existing capabilities, align and position for future opportunities, and envision, validate, and execute new strategies and major changes to operations. As a result, business consulting provides significant opportunities in each economic cycle. IDC's Business Consulting Services research analyzes the business imperatives that drive business consulting requirements, offers predictions for consulting and advisory services players, and provides strategic guidance to help consulting and advisory services firms compete more effectively.
