Although 39 percent told IBM they think capitalizing on new technologies is very important, only 12 percent think their firms are effective at it. When it comes to forming successful strategic alliances, they found a 29 percent gap between importance and a firm’s professed ability. A full 80 percent said their firms were weak or only moderately proficient in key areas such as managing risk, understanding client needs, providing quality advice and eradicating inefficiencies.
