Here's an opportunity I'll pass along to Services Safari readers. I've known Dave Hofferberth for a number of years now. He was the Professional Services analyst for Aberdeen for quite sometime. His firm, SPI Research, tracks professional services firms and the vendors who support them.
Dave and Jeanne Ulrich are working on a benchmarking study and could use a few more service firms to join their effort. Respondents get a free report. Here's their teaser below:
Did you know?
· Average reported PS backlog has dropped from 48.5% of quarterly revenue forecast to 39.4% this year
· Average PS annual revenue per consultant has dropped from $214K last year to $186K this year
If you don’t complete our PS Maturity survey by next Monday, December 1st you won’t know the answers to these and 175 other Key PS Performance questions so you will be left in the dark to navigate the turbulent times ahead.
This is your final reminder to complete the PS Maturity Model benchmark survey. Here is the link:
To date, over 140 PS organizations have completed the survey which means our upcoming PS Maturity Benchmark 2009 which will be published in January will be BIGGER and BETTER than last year.
Despite your procrastination, we are hoping to reach 175 completed surveys by December 1st so we will reward you with a FREE COPY OF THE 2009 BENCHMARK (worth $495) just for taking the time to complete the survey.
So don’t delay – this is the easiest way to make $495 you will receive today.
Happy Thanksgiving and get your survey in!
