...liberalization of policies and providing necessary capital and infrastructure to foster growth. Thus Indian environment has been conducive for growth. (Ref: Indian Embassy.org) Competitor analysis- The market for IT industry was fairly competitive with IBM and Accenture as global leaders and rest of the market was pretty diffused. IBM and Accenture had strong brand and a global presence with a large customer base. They also offered panoply of services viz. technology implementation, business consulting, offshore services, customer relationship management etc. Both offered breadth and depth of services. IT market in India offered technical and business consulting with Tata Consultancy Services which was the market leader in IT exports and Wipro Technologies and Infosys being other major market players. TCS offered consultancy services, IT services, asset based solution etc. Wipro was third largest IT provider with service offerings in IT consulting, software solutions, BPO etc. Both had a strong global presence. Intensity of Rivalry: Rivalry amongst competitors was pretty intense as can be seen the Indian competition caused IBM to increase their presence in India. However leaders like IBM and Accenture had a wide range of service offerings so competition was only amongst few sectors. Rivalry was to hire the top talent as human capital is the most important thing in the IT sector. This is the reason that attrition rate lead to a rise in pay packages.

Consultancy Is Not a Profession

...CONSULTANCY NOT A PROFESSION By Henry Egyeyu Bellying Consultancy P.O Box 1234, Kitgum 30th March, 2010 RE: CONSULTANCY MEETING PROFESSION OR NOT - A CASE OF BAIN & COMPANY 1.0 Background information Bain & Company was established in 1973 by a group of seven former partners and managers from the Boston Consulting Group headed by Bill Bain. The company was originally headquartered in Lexington, Massachusetts on Militia Drive. By the end of the decade, the firm's headquarters were in Faneuil Hall Marketplace in downtown Boston. Under Bain's direction, the firm implemented a number of unconventional practices in its early years. Notably, Bain & Co. would work with only one client per industry to avoid potential conflicts of interest. Partners did not carry business cards and clients were referred to by code names to enforce client confidentiality. The company won clients by boardroom referrals rather than marketing, and claimed its consultants worked on increasing a company's market value rather than simply handing clients a list of recommendations. To win business, Bain demonstrated the increase in the price of their clients' stocks relative to the Dow Jones Industrial Average. The firm's founding was followed by a period of growth in the late 1970s and early 1980s as the firm opened offices in Menlo Park, California, London, Munich, Paris, and Tokyo. Another consulting approach used...

...Leeds Metropolitan University 4/30/2012 IFM PLC | Consultancy Report | Financial Analysis and assessing future options for the company | Mohamed Kamara and Iwi Ugiagbe-Green Jens Hagenbeck ID: 33269369 Executive Summary This consultancy report aims at the Board of Directors of IFM Plc a multinational company providing financial services and was being ordered by Finance Director Mrs. Diana Worth. It analyses and evaluates a prospective joint venture between a German subsidiary and EMF Plc, re-domiciling the parent company from France to Monaco and expanding into Asia. The financial analysis showed that a joint venture requires an €2 million investment, which could be funded by the shareholders offering a yield of return of 12%. Using the financial data provided and calculating the weighted average cost of capital and the Net Present Value, a WACC of 10% and a NPV of €2.051 million were the results, proving the worthiness of the investment into the joint venture. Before signing any agreements further research needs to be taken to evaluate non-financial aspects such as opportunity costs and other investments. The second part of the report deals with the re-domiciling of the parent company from France to Monaco. From a business perspective and logical point of view this step makes sense as a lot of business operations are being run in Monaco, but it could still damage the company’s image to move from France just for profit and also shareholders might...

...Sikachenya malundu, a junior consultancy in business and a University of zambia graduate as of 2014, major in maths and geography. My names are Sikachenya Malundu, I was placed at a home of six children with a UKV Charlie Clay. Mr Kalenga, the man of the house- a former minister of agriculture, is a very good man who is more welcoming to his house. Mrs kalenga, an official at the Ministry of Education is such lovely mother with a command. It was such a good time being placed in the Kalenga’s with Charlie. We had good time there with my house mate Charlie especially when it came to eating. They provided us with good food and meals. The main problem we had was the distance from home to the next bus station. We spent each, one hour and thirty minutes, each day walking. Mr Kalenga made sure we had clean water through out. There was a problem with the electricity in the whole country, so we had power shortages each day for eight hours. The family has got a maid who helps out with the house chores, and most of the time she did the cleaning. But we later, after two weeks, decided to start helping out with cleaning plates and pots after having dinner. This was a bit a challenge to Charlie, because I am used to that kind of water. It is just a shame that we didn’t have time to say a physical farewell to Mrs Kalenga as she travelled to Kitwe on the Copperbelt. Our house was one of the nicest host homes as it is situated just next the massive embassy of America in Ibex hills.......
