It appears that consulting firm leaders are—once and for all—
finally moving on from the Great Recession.
It’s been a long time coming, for sure. The wounds were deep, no doubt. And the scars remain
but time marches on. And so does the profession. Based on the results of our Executive
Outlook survey, which measures how firm leaders are forecasting 2014, it appears the consulting
profession, or at least the ones calling the shots at the firms, feel pretty good about where we
are and where we’re going. A whopping 92 percent of executives are predicting revenue growth for
2014 and 56 percent expect that revenue growth to be in excess of 10 percent. Compared with
2013, those numbers are up from 80 percent and 48 percent, respectively.
