Martinique Management Consulting Industry survey Caribbean Export Management Consulting Industry symposium St Kitts, June 29, 2010
PROJECT DESCRIPTION Presentation Aims : • Profile management consulting industry in Martinique • Compare the results with the previous study done by EME. Methodology: • A translated version of the questionnaires were used We encountered the same difficulty as the EME study as some respondents were unwilling to supply the level of information asked for in the survey. However, we found that this “fear” was alleviated in face to face interviews.
PROJECT DESCRIPTION Sample : Table 1: Survey responses by country A significant amount of effort was spent in getting this response levels.

MANAGEMENT CONSULTING INDUSTRY PROFILE • Most consulting firms (92,9%) take the form of limited liability companies. • In terms of number of employees, most consulting firms have less than 4 employees. • Martinique’s consulting firms have very small operations by regional standards.
MANAGEMENT CONSULTING INDUSTRY PROFILE Revenue • Unlike the survey in the other countries, the majority of the consulting firms in Martinique earn between $100,000 and $500,000. • Within the respondents, none have less that $20,000 revenue nor more than $500,000. • The lack of companies with lower revenues indicates that most of the respondents are probably not new entrants in the industry but established firms.
This study is more indicative than predictive. However it has helped to focus on an industry that has never been analyzed. We intend to extend on a larger sample. Thank you
