MUMBAI, January 29, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

- Program by Aquila Advisors LLC, USA and Vaibhav Manek, KAV & Co.

- Tailor-made for Professional Service Firms to Meet Future in Bold and Informed Manner

The constantly shifting tide of economics and accountancy is a tricky aspect for any organisation to pin down. In today's fast evolving business environment, the immediate need for a progressive professional service firm is to map out an agenda to provide sustained growth for the organisation. The requirement therefore is to have a facilitator who can explain, train and attune a firm towards higher efficiency and effectiveness.

According to the research of Aquila & Manek, while writing their book, CA Firm of the Future, in recent times a vast majority of entrepreneurs in mid-tier professional service firms get stuck with weak growth rates. Some of these firms are constantly looking for expansion opportunities in higher growth economies - which are hard to come by, unless the firm is in alignment.

Aquila Advisors LLC, USA, which specializes in practice management, succession planning, merger and acquisitions, in strategic partnership with KAV & Co., an advisory firm, have launched the "Professional Services Firm of the Future Program". The program focuses on addressing key challenges facing the professional service firms, in terms of growth, strategy, partner and people compensation and alignment, innovation, succession planning, mergers and acquisition, marketing the firm's brand and knowledge base, which plays a significant role in building up a strong foothold of the corporate goals. To stay growth-happy, one needs to keep up with the latest best management practices and stay equipped with precise tools and knowledge, guided by seasoned experts.

A recent study also found that only 15% workers know their organization's key goals. This also implies that firms who are serious about improving performance need a total review. They need to grow a brand for the firm and its practice areas. They need an accurate picture of how each individual looks at marketing, client relationships, brand building and marketing and its interplay.

To obtain a clear picture of the industry, the Professional Services Firm of the Future Program is tailor-made for firms that are keen to meet the future in a bold and informed manner. This Program is a head-start into creating and clarifying the vision, objectives and strategies of a professional services firm and its people and intends to maximise opportunity and enhance performance and profitability for firms that are geared to embrace tomorrow.

August Aquila, CEO, Aquila Global Advisors, LLC says, "Professional Service Firms across the world have chosen to adapt to the growth revolution by signing up for the Practice Management Program. For them, it means encouraging a culture of innovation, superior functioning, realistic expectations, sophisticated process management, and more."

Vaibhav Manek, Partner, KAV & Co. says, "Change thrives in an environment full of learning and development - a process that can amplify through mutual understanding and growth. Hence, networking and mergers are threads that will help create the fabric of transformation and will be critical in fuelling the way forward for Professional Service firms."
