Management Consultancy Sector in Hong Kong
This study follows the acceptance in December 1997 by the Hong Kong Coalition of Service Industries of a proposal prepared by the Poon Kam Kai Institute of Management of the University of Hong Kong on the promotion of the management consultancy sector in Hong Kong.
Due to the discrete nature of some of the elements of the brief, introductions and conclusions to each section are given as appropriate rather than an overall executive summary.
Most of the data and analysis contained come from interviews and surveys in Hong Kong of (1) around 300 users/non-users of management consultancy, (2) over 100 management consultancy firms and professionals, and (3) officials from several public bodies. Additional information has been derived from a survey of management consultancy associations and institutes around the world. Thanks are due to all of these for their time and insights. Thanks are also due to Dr W K Chan and Mr Thinex Shek of the Hong Kong General Chamber of Commerce for their assistance throughout this study. All views expressed are based on this research, together with analysis of additional secondary data, and are those of the authors, as are any omissions or errors.
This project has been financed by the Services Support Fund of the Industry Department, the Government of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region.
