About this book

The professional services market is under continuous pressure to change. Some firms have responded well, many have tried and failed. Professionals prefer to analyze and debate, rather than decide and act. Implementation and speed of response within professional firms remains a key problem. Whilst many management books focus on strategic change, few tackle it in the context of professional service firms. This book provides practical tools to harness the intellect and energy of professionals to implement holistic change successfully.

Reviews

'This book should almost be regarded as mandatory reading for anyone involved in law firm management, and anyone who provides advice to law firms, be it management consultancy or financial. It is well written and combines structured analysis with highly perceptive personal views...' - Andrew Otterburn, The Journal of the Law Society of Scotland
