12th Annual Women in Consulting Best Practices Survey Infographic

Last Thursday, December 12th, Women in Consulting released the full results of our 12th Annual Best Practices and Compensation Survey.  The survey found that while gross revenue of top Bay Area consultants increased dramatically, revenue margins were down, in part due to a decline in the use of consulting best practices.  According to the report, in 2013, only 69 percent of all respondents sometimes charge fixed or project fees, a decrease from 70 percent in 2011 and 77 percent in 2012.

There is a lot we can learn from WIC’s 12th annual best practices survey.  WIC President Kathie Sherman says it best, “One of the most valuable aspects of the WIC survey is the analysis of the responses of top-earning consultants to identify successful best practices that others can use in their businesses.”

Below is an infographic that details some of the key findings of the survey.  Additionally, the full survey is available to WIC members.  Consultants can get a copy of the full report if they become a WIC member.  Please feel free to share the infographic with any consultants you think may benefit.

Alicia Woodfall-Jones studied to be a teacher but found she lacked the passion. So, after landing a job at Genentech, she quickly learned she had an affinity for developing efficient and compliant pharmaceutical documentation solutions. Over a decade later, Alicia entered the pharmaceutical consulting world, expanding her experience and knowledge to include technical writing, project management, and instructional design in a variety of companies and functions.

After numerous years working as an independent consultant, Alicia founded Bulletproof Documentation, which specializes in providing consulting technical and medical writers, instructional designers, and project managers to the pharmaceutical and medical device industries. Since 2008, the company has steadily grown on the reputation of being extremely responsive and providing high quality product with excellent customer service. It took a long time to earn this reputation and it is a most prized possession. It is upheld by every Bulletproof consultant, every day, on every project.
