The Big Consulting firms are finding the field heavy going. Why is that?

During the big Dot.Com burst of 2001, many professional consultants were laid off by the Big 4 and again in 2007. The big four and others needed to cut cost and maintain share value.

Several important events happen during this period:-
  • They laid off professional with in-depth experience and new junior neophytes were brought in to replace them
  • It was not as if consulting cycle stop, during the layoff there were pipeline businesses and engagements in the form of introduction, products/solutions presentation, contract signing, project delivery etc

In 2001 the Big Four lost about 22% of pipeline and New Businesses to leaving consultant and they lost more than 35% again during the economic downturn of 2007. Al together the true loss was over 50%.

For these firms to maintain market share they needed ten years in a relatively dynamic and growing economy for the turn they seek to be realise but the 2007 near banking collapsed lost them the recovery time they seek

Many of those laid off in 2001 were in their late forties to early sixties while those laid off in 2007 were from earlier thirties to sixties. These people simply took the bull by the horn to setup their own consulting firms and taking the engagements they started to work on, at the Big Four to their own firm. A snap shot of consulting on the Internet between 2001 – 2007 and 2008 – 2014, indicated over 500% of private consulting start-ups. Almost all of them are on engagements this is what is impacting the Big Four.
