Comprehensive new research from Kennedy on consulting markets in every subregion of Europe shows that the overall market for consulting is recovering slowly. However, Eastern Europe consulting markets—most notably East Central Europe and the Confederation of Independent States (CIS )—are growing, and expected to be the envy of the entire region throughout Kennedy’s forecast period.
The full study also details the major drivers of consulting spend, including clients’ increased need to comprehend and compensate for vulnerability in all manner of business, political and legal relationships—as well as simplifying tangled and snarled processes and systems.
Kennedy analysts also predict that financial services companies will be the largest consumers of consulting services—and demand for operations management consulting in particular will outpace that for other service lines.
