Why Read This Report

Large, geographically distributed consulting projects incur high coordination and administrative costs and limit the number of clients who can actively participate. Furthermore, dysfunctional behaviors associated with groupthink often prevent the sharing of candid information. Several consultancies are using a software tool, ThinkTank, to overcome these limitations. Our research has shown that this technology combined with well-tested methodologies and learnings from behavioral science can greatly benefit both consultancies and CIOs.
