  2. Identify the connection between market trends and strategic options, focusing on two strategic options – Solution Provider and Talent Provider – to illustrate the need to define a strategic direction.
  3. Participate in a “diagnostic” evaluation relating to a practice group or firm strategic position, which will provide input on whether participant should consider a Solution orTalent Provider strategy.
  4. Evaluate a case study or learn about an example of how each strategy might be implemented.
