Future Leaders of ConsultingJohn Furth, CEO & President, AMCF
Management Consulting is an industry with a rich and long history. While many of the pillars from the past still remain core to the profession, the future of management consulting will be transformed as the new generation of talent grows into tomorrow’s leaders.
The landscape has changed dramatically as technology seeds the opportunity to communicate in real-time across the globe. Social media has redefined the way we collaborate and will continue to play a large role in how we align business and community. Emerging markets evolve into more mature geographies and new players enter the mix providing unique challenges and complexities that inspire consultants to find innovative solutions for clients. The global economy drives client demand and dictates how we sell our services.
While these external factors define the landscape of the business, management consulting as a practice is built on the thought capital of TALENT. Management consulting has always been a place for some of the best and brightest people in the world to use their ideas and creativity to bring about positive and lasting change to companies, governments and a variety of other kinds of organizations.
