|Long Description||International expert and consultant David Maister offers a brilliant and accessible guide to every management issue at play in professional firms. Professional firms differ from other business enterprises in two distinct ways: first, they provide highly customized services and thus cannot apply many of the management principles developed for product-based industries. Second, professional services are highly personalized, involving the skills of individuals. Such firms must therefore compete not only for clients but also for talented professionals. Drawing on more than ten years of research and consulting to these unique and creative companies, David Maister explores issues ranging from marketing and business development to multinational strategies, human resources policies to profit improvement, strategic planning to effective leadership. While these issues can be complex, Maister simplifies them by recognizing that “every professional service firm in the world, regardless of size, specific profession, or country of operation, has the same mission statement: outstanding service to clients, satisfying careers for its people, and financial success for its owners.”|

Thank you all for your patence and understanding during the last several weeks as we added new equipment to the web site. We are all finished with the hardware portion of the upgrade.
We still have changes coming for the web site. We will always be improving but we have a few big changes coming to the web site soon that will make things a little easier for everyone.
But the big hardware upgrade is finished. We now have two new servers that share the duty of serving up web pages, product data and pictures to you.
The two servers share the work load so neither one has to do it all and this should offer faster serverice on a regular basis. But when we need to perform backups or other maintenance on one of the machines, we can switch the system to use only the other server and you will never know.
We hope that this stops most, if not all, down time in the future. The site has become far to popular to be off line for any lenght of time.
Again, thanks for your understanding.
