Year after year, professional services organizations(opens in new tab) look to gather various metrics on the performance of their operations. Pulling the data across thousands of consultants is one step, but what about stack ranking their importance internally or benchmarking the metrics externally across the industry?

This year’s Professional Services Maturity Benchmark report offers compelling insights into the metrics of some of the most globally renowned professional services groups.

This comprehensive report from SPI Research(opens in new tab), the leading independent technology services research firm, found 20 out of 456 firms surveyed to perform better than the rest in profitability, on-time delivery and client satisfaction. SPI identifies these firms as “the best-of-the-best.”

Jeanne Urich, Managing Director of SPI, outlined five common threads of success among this group in the top 5 percent: leadership, client relationships, human capital alignment, service execution, and finance and operations.

Below is a sneak peek at some of the key differentiating data that separates the best from the rest:
