Understanding the spread of talent across the market.

Market Mapping & Benchmarking

One of the key challenges for businesses rests in understanding the spread of talent across the market.

Both in respect of who are the key players/rising stars in competitors and, often, how do our own team members measure up from a technical standpoint and in the eyes of the market. At Edward Drummond Consulting we focus on helping our clients to understand the structure of competitor organisations from a Senior Talent perspective AND generating market insight into how individual practitioners/professionals measure up to their competitors.

Indicative projects include:

  • Identifying the ‘next wave’ of senior management across a range of disciplines in a highly technical and competitive industry, with a view to being well positioned to quickly headhunt the best talent in the event of any senior level requirements.
  • Analysing the market profile of a group of Partners within a legal Client with a view to identifying key competitors and areas of strength/weakness to be leveraged/improved.
  • Undertaking ‘retrospective Due Diligence’ on a senior hire which had not delivered the hoped for figures, understanding this ‘failure’ from an external perspective with a view to establishing whether a) it could be repositioned and turned around or b) it would be better for all parties to draw a line under the enterprise.
  • Undertaking market soundings for a global legal practice as part of the internal Partnership Promotion Analysis, seeking to understand which Senior Associates had already developed external market traction.
