Strategy in Professional Services Firms - Why I Abandoned Porter and Embraced Lorsch.

"After 15+ years of trying to make practical sense of Michael Porter's Strategic theories (and finding OPM's Strategy approach intellectually fascinating, but hopelessly impractical) I discovered a Harvard group of professors that had spent 20+ years studying Professional Services Firms, and had built a practical Strategic Model that I started to apply with the goal to quadruple revenue at Argo.  So far, through many painful changes, I have doubled the size of the company and, for the first time, I feel I have a roadmap to achieve my original goal."
