Introduction to the Professional Knowledge Firm (aka Firm of the Future)

Description

This session will be dedicated to the possibility that a professional organization can be run more effectively when it becomes a knowledge firm rather than a service firm. Creating such an organization is hard work and not for everyone. It requires us to think differently than we have in the past about what it is that we do. You are hereby invited to open a dialogue on a different model for creating and capturing value in a professional firm. We will explore two business models: the firm of the past and the firm of the future. We will also begin a conversation about the four transformations that need to occur in order for firm to make the transition successfully.

Presented by Ed Kless, Sage, Senior Director of Partner Development and Strategy

Before joining Sage Ed worked with Tipping Point Advisors, an organization dedicated to the growth and development of software implementation partners. In 1996, he co-founded Third Wave Business Systems, a Microsoft Dynamics GP partner that grew to 20 team members and $5 million in revenue. At Third Wave, Ed developed the implementation methodology and led the CRM and ERP consulting teams.

Ed is a contributor to industry publications, including the Journal of Accountancy, Harvard Business Review and HR.com, and has spoken at many conferences worldwide on project management, pricing, and knowledge workers.
