Tactical, Operational & Strategic Analysis of Markets, Competitors & Industries
Has your professional services firm been blindsided by globalization, disruptive innovations, or new competitors? Would your professional services firm benefit from the insights competitive intelligence can offer? Are you curious if your skill set and competitive intelligence experience would be a good fit in a professional services environment?
Professional services firms (e.g., legal, accounting, medical, consulting, engineering, architectural) can be rewarding workplaces for Competitive Intelligence professionals—or not. Their work forces are well-educated, licensed subject-matter experts, and many are firm owners. With multiple owners and organizations highly matrixed along lines of business, client sectors, and locations, decision-making can be a slow, black-box affair. Yet these firms badly need Competitive Intelligence to navigate today’s market changes caused by globalization, disruptive innovations, and new competitors. Successful Competitive Intelligence pros win and keep leaders’ trust, build strong intel networks, work on a wide array of issues and entities, and fend off “Hey, you!” assignments.
Ann Lee Gibson, Ph.D. of Ann Lee Gibson Consulting advises law firms on competitive intelligence and business development. She consults, teaches, and coaches in the areas of firm growth strategies, high-stakes business competitions, and sales presentations. Dr. Gibson also helps law firms develop Competitive Intelligence and proposal systems. Since 1998, she has helped law firms compete for and win over $800 million in new business.
Dr. Gibson will present 30 minutes on how competitive intelligence can be a deciding factor in the success of professional firms and will be joined by webinar moderator Dr. Craig Fleisher, Chief Learning Officer at Aurora WDC.
The second half of the hour will continue with questions from the online audience and thoughts on what the future holds for helping business leaders make more confident decisions in uncertain times, concluding with a description of the next webinar and other upcoming activities in the Intelligence Collaborative series.
