"High praise for Maureen Broderick and for The Art of Managing Professional Services. Maureen has bridged from the principles to the pragmatic in exploring the key drivers of firm success. In so doing, her analysis reflects the lessons of many - both in successes and failures - and presents a thorough compendium for today's and tomorrow's leaders. This analysis gives leaders a leg up in competing on the global landscape."

James Turley, Chairman and CEO, Ernst & Young
