  • Africana Studies The inclusion of African intellectuals, scientists, activists, and leaders who have made significant contributions, is a relatively new addition to academia. Through social reform, perseverance and time, African voices who were relatively unknown with their achievements being understated for a significant portion of the 21st century are getting more of the acknowledgment that they deserve. Since we work with clients internationally and often partner with researchers at Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs), at Precision, we know that the HBCU fight for educational equality is one side of the coin of acknowledgment sought by those of African descent throughout the United States and around the world. At Precision, we are honored to help graduate researchers of all backgrounds who are looking to understand complex relationships between different ethnic groups existing inside relatively new European-made borders on the African continent. We also work hand-in-hand with researchers examining the lingering psychological and social implications that exist for those of the African diaspora in the United States. Often, this research has applications to the fields of social justice and gender equality. Social Justice: The concept of social justice can be much more than merely an academic concept as African Americans and those of African descent around the world work to achieve Na’im Akbar’s dream of “breaking the chains of psychological slavery”. Part of the path to psychological healing is by honoring and better understanding the literary and social impact of authors like Wole Soyinka, Alain Mabanckou, and Chinua Achebe. By shining a light on the realities of social mores, social perceptions of Africana, and day-to-day interactions, whether satirically or with candor, key discussions about economic, political and social equality for those of African descent can be established. Even though colleges and universities no longer limit or bar access to enrollment on the basis of race or ethnicity, there are other barriers to entry for many students of African descent. Obstacles to receiving a higher education are especially pronounced for first-generation college students from low-income families. HBCUs continue to represent an important avenue of higher education for hundreds of thousands of students across the United States in spite of the social progress that has been made since the 60’s. There is still ground to cover in order to achieve educational equality, and HBCUs, when compared with PWIs, have higher graduation rates for low-income African American students. Some HBCUs, like Howard, even boast significantly higher retention rates than the national average. Social justice in the field of Africana Studies helps to tell the story of perseverance through segregation, discrimination, and blatant violence in order to overcome prejudice. The HBCU’s that we partner with understand that social justice is an integral part of the African American struggle to first, be seen as humans with rights and then to be seen as equal citizens rather than as expendable, marginalized, second-class citizens. To this day, HCBUs are a core part of the fight to elevate quality education for African Americans by refusing to accept a forced ignorance stemming out of educational inequity. For example, Howard University’s Center on Race and Wealth focuses on research and policy related to racial disparities in areas including wealth accumulation, poverty, and law enforcement. Morehouse College’s School of Medicine has worked to address racial health disparities through ongoing research and policy recommendations. Xavier University of Louisiana’s Division of Education and Counseling has committed to improving outcomes of diverse learners through its program of research, which attends to the role of race, ethnicity, poverty, gender, and disability in academic achievement. HBCUs continue to provide an excellent platform for expanding the possibilities and nurturing the potential of African American students in an environment that naturally applies a culturally relevant pedagogy. Gender Equality: Gender equality in Africana Studies often intertwines with concepts of social justice, but is such an important field of study that it stands on its own merits. At Precision, we often participate in research that focuses on gender equality. The use of theories such as Feminist Standpoint Theory and research designs such as phenomenology align well with this type of research. We’re proud to assist with studies highlighting African contributions to STEM and women’s rights by partnering with researchers building studies that are only possible thanks to the efforts and accomplishments of people like Dr. Wangari Muta Maathai, the first female professor in Kenya as well as the first African female Nobel Peace Prize winner and Dr. Margaret Mungherera who was the first female president of the World Medical Association. The diversity of experience across the continent of Africa is reflected in the broad scope of research and innovation seen from one country to the next. All of these accomplishments provide a foundation for researchers around the world to continue uncovering new paradigms and understandings for what concepts like social justice and gender equality, and at Precision we believe that they must not be overlooked. Social Justice and Gender equality often affect public policy. Research in Africana Studies plays a vital role in working to empower and improve the lives of African descendants from one generation to the next. Precision is honored to assist graduate researchers at HBCUs and other institutions with such impactful research by examining core issues through both qualitative and quantitative lenses. Since we are well versed with the types of methodologies, constructs, and theories that lend themselves well to Africana Studies based research we often assist with the exploration of the particular viewpoints and interpretations that participants have to share. The qualitative explorations of the experiences of marginalized persons is an important aspect of respecting that these individuals are the experts on their own experiences. Although qualitative methods are ideal for capturing the first-hand thoughts, perspectives, and stories of participants, quantitative methods are essential for understanding broader patterns that relate to marginalization or discrimination. For example, we have assisted graduate researchers from HBCUs to develop quantitative investigations of African American student achievement gaps as well as disparities in school discipline that underlie the school-to-prison pipeline. We have also assisted with quantitative examinations of variables related to African American health disparities and disparate treatment within the legal system. Within the field of Africana Studies, developing the literature and theoretical context for social justice research also requires an appreciation of key concepts and theories. For example, we often assist graduate researchers at HBCUs to develop theoretical framing for their studies using critical race theory, which emphasizes the systemic nature of racism and the regularity with which African American individuals experience racism and prejudice. Critical race theory contributes key concepts to research on the marginalization of African American citizens, bringing to light the adverse cumulative effects of racial microaggressions and the importance of counter-stories to challenge cultural narratives that reflect white privilege. Along with critical race theory, there are concepts espoused by lecturers like Chloé Valdary we have assisted graduate researchers at HBCUs with developing theoretical frameworks using theories such as fundamental cause theory and feminist standpoint theory. Both theories help to provide an aligned and meaningful theoretical context for social justice research on various topics. Fundamental cause theory is a useful framework for the examination of poverty in relation to health disparities, and the key proposition is that poverty itself is the fundamental cause of disparate outcomes. Feminist standpoint theory is another useful framework for social justice research, as it positions the participants as the ultimate experts on their own lives, acknowledging that one’s perspectives derive from one’s own particular experiences. Having lived with comparative privilege, the powerful may not necessarily relate to the perspectives of those who have lived through marginalization. Hence, feminist standpoint theorists contend that we must recognize the authority of participants to speak about and interpret their lives when endeavoring to understand their lived realities. Our assistance to graduate researchers attending HBCUs has also prominently involved use of constructs such as intersectionality and assets- versus deficits-based thinking, as these concepts are important to consider when conducting research related to social justice. Intersectionality refers to the intersection of individual characteristics (e.g., race, class, gender) that together may create a specific experience of multiple marginalization. For example, we cannot assume that a wealthy Black woman would have the same experiences of discrimination as a Black woman living in poverty. Researchers working within a deficits-based model might examine these two groups of women’s experiences with an inherent assumption that poor Black women experience more challenging conditions as a result of their own failings or shortcomings. Deficits-based thinking is often eschewed in social justice research, as it essentially blames the victims of systemic or institutional injustice.

In addition to psychology, education, nursing, and business, our team includes expert analysts who can provide extensive assistance with a wide variety of specialized topics. These areas range from electrical engineering, wine biochemistry, and veterinary science to music theory, theology, and rhetoric & composition. As a result of our long experience providing complex statistical analysis support, we also have a high degree of expertise in economics, econometrics, and mathematical finance topics and analyses. Our team’s expertise truly encompasses a broad range of disciplines and highly specialized knowledge, so please don’t hesitate to contact us for dissertation assistance even if your topic or field isn’t explicitly noted above.

Qualitative, Quantitative, and Mixed Dissertation Methods

Precision started out as a statistical analysis firm, and that’s still one of the primary services we offer to academic researchers and corporate clients alike. Since then, we’ve expanded to provide the most comprehensive qualitative research support available, and work regularly with several major research institutions to analyze their qualitative data . Regardless of the scale and complexity of your quantitative or qualitative research–or if you have selected a mixed methods approach –we have a talented team of experts with PhDs across the social sciences, STEM fields, and humanities who can provide comprehensive dissertation assistance to you throughout your doctoral journey.

Are you completing your degree at an online university?

While our academic consultants are experienced in working with brick and mortar institutions as well as online master’s and doctoral programs (in the US and around the world), we have a particular depth of experience providing dissertation assistance to candidates attending the major online universities. We work with more clients from Walden, Grand Canyon University, University of Phoenix, Capella, and Northcentral (among others!) each year, –which means we’re intimately familiar with their rubrics and procedures, from developing the key foundational elements for the initial prospectus, research plan, or concept paper , to the unique review process, checklists, and templates for each university’s full dissertation, project study, or capstone deliverable. We’re also highly familiar with the frequent and ongoing review process at the majority of these programs, and can absolutely draw on our expertise to provide comprehensive dissertation help for even the most demanding chair or university reviewer feedback.

Dissertation Help on a Deadline

Many of our clients, especially doctoral candidates attending programs at the major online universities, come to us with specific deadlines for dissertation editing to be completed before the end of the current term. Others often reach out as the clock winds down on their doctoral journeys and they must complete all remaining steps of their dissertation or thesis writing before a final end date in order to finish their doctoral degree. Still others seek us out for dissertation help at the early stages of their research and drafting so that they have full and ongoing support to stay on target (and on budget!) throughout the process. Whatever your specific deadline–whether it’s two days from now, or two months from now–we can draw on our extensive resources and dedicated staff to ensure your work is completed on time and ready for approval.

Per-project Quotes and Budget for Dissertation Assistance

Our support for you will be very much based on your goals for the research to come, and your priorities for dissertation assistance throughout the process. This is precisely why we develop quotes on a per-project basis, so that we provide you with exactly the level of assistance you need at every step of your journey, and a quote that precisely reflects the scope of work. While others might charge on a per-page or per-hour basis, we find that these models create incentives on the part of other services to spend either a great many pages or a great many hours on a given project, but without the need to be particularly successful in the process.

This is also why we remain with you through any necessary revisions to our dissertation assistance and editing. Unlike smaller and less established dissertation consulting services, we guarantee our work until approval, and include additional support to address feedback in our initial quote. This is because we understand the highly iterative process of dissertation review and approval, particularly at the major online universities, which often involve multiple rounds of feedback at each stage. We’re here as your teammate to help you address any and all feedback–and celebrate your research and graduation once your journey is complete!

In addition to the individualized support and industry-leading expertise outlined above, we also include the following in our promise to you:

  • Guaranteed Fast Approval. For any dissertation help we provide, we guarantee approval by your reviewer or institution, almost always on the first submission. Of course, in the rare case of any revision requests, we work on any requested revisions immediately and without extra cost.
  • Security. We are the industry leader in dissertation consulting and editing services for a reason. As proven academic consultants and dissertation editors for more than a decade, we have thousands of satisfied clients, are a member of the Inc 500 (one of the 500 fastest growing companies in the country), and consequently have top positioning for most dissertation help and dissertation editing terms throughout Google. Your precious work, money, and time are safe with us.
  • Personalized Attention. You will work with one dissertation consultant who will be constantly available to you via phone or email during and after your time working with us. We’re easy to reach, always happy to speak to you, and don’t disappear when the work is done (in case you need us for revisions or after-support).

Let’s keep it a secret….

In this first video, we’ll talk about a key characteristic of all well-designed research, which is alignment. [does some funny little voice while enunciating the individual syllables of “a-lign-ment” while gesturing in a left-to-right line to set the stage for the visual presentation of alignment that is to come] Whether you are a beginning researcher, conducting your earliest research projects for your master’s or doctoral degrees, or a seasoned researcher conducting studies for publication, achieving alignment in your study is super important. It’s an area that we find our clients need lots of help with when doing their dissertations. So, I’ll be talking with you today about alignment to provide you with a clear and more concrete understanding of what alignment means, as well as with an understanding of how to achieve alignment in your study and why this is so important.

Creating alignment is a key part of developing your topic, and if you’re still looking to more fully develop your own topic, we can provide help with your dissertation focus and other elements for you. Check out our video on topic development for more!

Alignment is an essential characteristic of a well-designed study, and yet it can be quite difficult to achieve for novice researchers. In fact, we often provide dissertation help to clients who are struggling to align their studies. And, we commonly find that alignment issues are truly the root problem that reviewers often mislabel as editing issues at the dissertation prospectus, concept paper, or proposal stage.

So before you focus your efforts on APA editing needlessly, let’s talk first about how to achieve alignment in your study, starting with what alignment means. When your study is appropriately aligned, this means that all of the core pieces of your research plan follow logically from the problem that you have constructed from your review of the research literature. Following your problem statement, you must craft the subsequent pieces of your research plan so that they all match one another in terms of the language that you use to discuss variables or phenomena of interest, and the plans you construct for collecting and analyzing your data. As I mentioned previously, we often find that master’s and doctoral candidates, as novice researchers, need some dissertation help when different pieces of their studies don’t quite fit together as well as they should. When we provide this form of dissertation consulting, here are the areas that we ensure are aligned:

The key features of the study that must be aligned are the problem statement, the purpose statement, the research questions, the theoretical framework, the method and design, the data collection and analysis procedures, and the significance of the study.

You might visualize these different key pieces of your study as boxcars on a train that must all be linked together for your study to function successfully as a process for gaining new insights or understanding of your topic.

If any of these cars are not linked to the car preceding it, then clearly your study will be a nonfunctional collection of segments that don’t work well with one another. In other words, the train falls apart and never gets to its destination! We don’t want that, do we? To clarify how these different segments of your study fit together, let’s move on to discuss each of these in more detail.

The problem statement is essentially the centerpiece of your study, or the engine that drives the train forward. Although this statement is usually fairly brief, at about 350 words or so, the information contained within the statement defines the direction the entire study will follow.

Your problem statement must define the exact nature of the problem as derived through a thorough review of all current research in the peer-reviewed literature related to your topic. The problem statement must also describe the research gap, which refers to a specific topic that has not been studied sufficiently and requires further examination through research.

As an example, your problem statement might revolve around high school students who engage in aggressive behaviors at school in spite of the presence of a schoolwide positive behavior support program. Maybe there have been several quantitative studies that document the overall positive effects of this type of schoolwide program on student challenging behavior, but the researchers who conducted these studies found that in spite of widespread improvements in behavior in response to such programs, many students continue to exhibit aggressive behavior, leaving us to ask: Why is this? Why is it that certain kids keep fighting and yelling at school, even under a behavior support program that has been so helpful to so many other students?

The lack of understanding of continued aggressive behavior by some students within schools that use schoolwide positive behavior supports would be the gap that these researchers argue must be better understood if we are to effectively address aggressive behavior across all students.

Now, following from this problem and research gap is the purpose of the study, or the purpose statement. The purpose is a very concise statement that basically says, “This is what I’m trying to do here in this study, and here’s how I’m going to do it.” In order to achieve alignment, the purpose must match what has been stated in the problem statement, which is accomplished through use of the same language to describe your variables or phenomena of interest. The purpose statement must also specify the method and design and must use language that “fits” this approach.

Using the example of the problem and research gap from above, an appropriate purpose statement might be: “The purpose of this qualitative case study is to explore middle school teachers’ perspectives on underlying causes of continued aggressive behavior in students within schools that use schoolwide positive behavior supports.”

Let’s have a look at the key pieces of this purpose statement.

So, we have a qualitative case study, the word “explore,” middle school teachers’ perspectives, continued aggressive behavior in students, and schools that use schoolwide positive behavior supports. So, those are all the key pieces of the purpose statement.

What you’ll notice here is that this purpose statement specifies an intent to examine the very same problem that is described in the problem statement. This is essential for achieving alignment.

Also, the qualitative method is aligned with the problem because we are seeking to understand a phenomenon that is somewhat rare, and that might require perspectives of those who have witnessed this problem first-hand to understand fully. Note also the use of the word “explore” in the purpose statement. This is a deliberate choice of words as qualitative studies are largely exploratory, and aimed at using such exploration to better understand complex processes.

The link from the problem to the purpose is essential to establishing an aligned study. We often find that doctoral candidates need some assistance with their dissertations here as the phrasing used in the purpose statement must be extremely concise and yet precisely aligned with each key concept, variable, or phenomenon as presented in the problem statement.

This is something that many of our clients struggle with, and if you are also finding yourself struggling to align your problem and purpose, give us a call or send an email to see how we can help you out with this major step in crafting your dissertation. No matter where you attend, we can definitely help you out with alignment.

But, we have particularly extensive experience with all of the major online universities, and are very familiar with their formats, review processes, and the types of alignment problems that often arise for individuals at these universities. And, if we help you with establishing alignment in your dissertation, we’ll provide unlimited revisions to our work with no extra charge as needed to obtain approval of your work.

Next in the alignment chain are the research questions, which must align with your purpose in terms of the variables or phenomena of interest that you plan to study. You must also use phrasing in these questions that is consistent with the method and design for your study. In the working example I have been using, an appropriate research question might be, “How do middle school teachers working in schools that implement schoolwide positive behavior supports perceive the causes for continued aggression in students in their schools?” Note that this question maintains consistent focus on the perceptions of middle school teachers, that the question specifies that schoolwide positive behavior supports are in place, and continues with the focus on causes for continued aggression in some students.

Next is the theoretical framework, which must be appropriate for guiding inquiry and developing research questions that suitably address your problem. It must also fit your study in terms of its applicability for interpreting or explaining the ultimate findings or results of the analysis. In the current example, it would be important to pick a theory that is relevant to student behavior and the causes for different types of behavior. So, picking a theory like Observational Learning Theory or Ecological Systems Theory would work, as these are theories that explain human behavior in terms of different types of social and environmental influences.

Aligning the theoretical framework to the purpose statement and RQs can also be a bit tricky for new researchers. Choosing a useful TF requires seeing how the different variables or phenomena of interest in your study might interact with regard to your specific RQs or outcomes of interest; this can sometimes require piecing together existing knowledge on your topic and making a reasonable guess as to the theory or combination of theories that might ultimately be helpful in explaining your findings. Sometimes this process can be quite confusing, especially when you are examining RQs that are unique or groundbreaking. In this case, you might find that you need help reworking this part of your dissertation to identify the most fitting theory or combination of theories to frame your study and interpret its findings.

Moving forward, the method and design must be appropriate for examining the specific problem articulated, and for generating knowledge that will truly shed light on the problem as described. As I mentioned previously, the qualitative method would be appropriately aligned to this study because of your aim of exploring a poorly understood phenomenon, which is the continued aggression in certain students in spite of schoolwide positive behavior supports.

The case study design is also aligned with this focus, because this design is great for building understanding of complex processes as they naturally occur in specific groups or settings. You can see how exploring teachers’ perceptions of the causes of aggression within certain schools would turn out to be a very complex study, which would be concerned with how the complexities of student behavior unfold on a daily basis within schools that use positive behavior supports. For these reasons, the qualitative case study design is nicely aligned with the overall study.

Also, keep in mind that we are unique among data analytics companies in that we also specialize in qualitative research and analysis, so if you are planning a qualitative study and are having problems with alignment, I am 100% sure that we can help you to resolve these problems.

To maintain alignment, your data collection procedures must be developed to obtain data of a type that is appropriate given the method and design. Similarly, the data analysis plan must be appropriate given the nature of the data, variables, research design.

For a qualitative case study design, you would want to use data collection approaches like interviews, observations, and review of relevant documents. You would want to draw up an analysis plan that identified common themes and facilitated triangulation across your different data sources. If you put together a data collection plan that used quantitative measures, this would result in misalignment, as the data you collected would be numerical rather than text-based.

Aligning your methods to your problem, purpose, and research questions is essential for ensuring that the results or findings you ultimately obtain truly address the problem that you have identified. Creating an aligned method requires not just attention to consistent phrasing related to your variables or phenomena of interest, but also a thorough understanding of statistical analysis or qualitative analysis. We often provide dissertation help to clients to develop thorough methods sections that are perfectly aligned with the overall aims of their studies.

We have extensive experience with all of the major online universities, and are very familiar with their formats, review processes, and the types of alignment problems that often arise for individuals at these universities. Also, we are the only academic consulting firm that specializes in qualitative research. If you are planning a qualitative study and are having problems with aligning the various components of your qualitative methodology, we can definitely help you out. Also, we provide unlimited revisions to our work with no extra charge as needed to obtain approval of your work.

Finally, the significance refers to the potentially positive outcomes of your study, if all goes well. To maintain alignment, your significance of the study section must logically flow from the problem, and cannot overreach the bounds of what is possible to accomplish given the potential findings of the study.

Given our running example, an aligned significance section would point out that gaining understanding of teachers’ perceptions of the causes for continued aggression in students within a schoolwide positive behavior support program might be helpful in effectively addressing challenging behavior in students whose behavior is resistant to change.

Ensuring that your proposed study is perfectly aligned is important for obtaining approval of your study. But, the reasons for seeking out dissertation help around alignment issues in your proposed study are really much more important than this. If you move forward with collecting your data in a proposed study that is not well aligned, you can run into some serious problems down the road.

To help explain the vital importance of alignment in your study, it will be helpful to ask: Why is it a problem if elements of my study are not aligned?

If your study is out of alignment, this means that one or more of these key pieces aren’t linked with the pieces around them.

There are some pretty serious consequences of moving forward with an improperly aligned study. For one, it could result in collecting data that do not address your problem, or that cannot actually answer your research questions. Also, this could result in conducting data analysis that results in unreliable, invalid, or untrustworthy findings. Lastly, a misaligned study could result in findings that cannot be soundly interpreted within the explanatory theoretical framework for the study.

These are clearly problems that no researcher wants to deal with, especially when you are just getting started. This is definitely where a dissertation consultant can come in handy, and if you would like some help with your dissertation proposal or prospectus to resolve alignment problems, give us a call or send an email — we’d love to help you out!

Optimum research consulting, premiere dissertation assistance, at optimum, we provide comprehensive dissertation assistance tailored to each client and each study. reach out today for a free consultation with an expert dissertation coach..

Our expert team at Optimum Research can provide you flexible, responsive dissertation help as you navigate your doctoral journey. Since 2018, we’ve helped hundreds of candidates become doctors through highly individualized, hands-on support . We offer help at each stage of your journey, leveraging the expertise of our team to provide doctoral-level research , qualitative and quantitative methodology, statistical analysis, and dissertation editing.

Our tailored, client-specific approach makes us different from other dissertation consulting firms, many of whom charge on a per-page or per-hour basis and don’t take the time to learn about a client’s study and needs before sharing a quote. At Optimum, we:

  • Offer free consultation with each client, first listening about your journey—where you are in that process, where you’ve been, and where you’re going .
  • Complete a diagnostic review of your existing work to determine where you’re starting from and what’s needed to reach final approval .
  • Provide a comprehensive written plan with feedback, guidance, and a plan for assistance and a to-the-dollar cost that includes all revisions.
  • Answer any and all questions before we start working and after we finish, ensuring we stay on the same page and on the path to approval.

These principles guide all the dissertation help we provide, through all the stages of the journey. Our assistance starts with the exploratory research needed to find a current and significant gap in the literature to motivate your study, and it culminates in comprehensive support in preparing for the defense of your final dissertation .

In between, we can help with all the research you’ll need to situate your study in the context of work in the field and justify its focus and research design . We can also develop a full methodology to help guide you through recruitment, data collection, and the qualitative and quantitative analysis that will help you construct the results and discussion chapters. We can also take on comprehensive dissertation editing and formatting to ensure that your manuscript adheres to APA editing conventions or any other formatting guidelines you must use.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is optimumresearchconsulting.com .

Optimum Research Consulting is a full-service academic consulting firm providing dissertation help across all stages of the doctoral journey. We offer a tailored and responsive approach, providing hands-on assistance with dissertation research, qualitative and quantitative methodology, statistical analysis, APA editing, and even defense preparation. We also help with everything in between these steps, leveraging doctoral-level expertise to help you reach approval quickly.

Why choose Optimum Research?

At Optimum, we recognize that each client and each study are different. Unlike other consulting firms, we don’t share a cost or contract without first building a careful, tailored plan for assistance . We offer free consultation and a free diagnostic review s of what you’re working on to help us see where you’re starting from and where you need to go. In fact, clients often tell us that the feedback and guidance we share is  more helpful than anything they’ve received from their committees! 

With the deep understanding we build through our review, we know exactly how to help, sharing a plan and quote for exactly that–with a cost that won’t change.

Do you provide a guarantee ?

We do! Because of the planning we do at the start of each project, we can take on all revisions until final approval . All reviewers have individual preferences–we learn and align our work with the m, all the way to the finish line .

What will it cost ?

Unlike other consulting firms, we don’t price on a per-hour or per-page basis. Doing so results in costs that aren’t stated clearly upfront and continue to creep upward during the course of a project. At Optimum, our expert dissertation coaches share a specific, to-the-dollar quote after diagnostic review and planning. The result is a tailored cost to match what you need to reach approval, including all revisions to get there.

Where are your consultants located ?

All of our staff–dissertation coaches, researchers, qualitative and quantitative analysts, statisticians, and APA editors–are based in the United States. Optimum is a cloud-based company, as this allows us to leverage the expertise of professors and researchers in a wide variety of fields. However, we insist that our team is US-based , as this ensures that we keep our work at doctoral level . Again, our clients’ work matters, and reaching approval quickly is the best way we can help.

Do you have subject-matter experts in my field of study?

We certainly do. Given the way we leverage doctoral-level resources, we have subject-matter experts in psychology, education, business, nursing, healthcare, organizational leadership, and a host of other fields. When a client reaches out for dissertation help in a field we don’t work in–say, electrical engineering–we’re happy to refer to another service.

What is the policy concerning confidentiality ?

Your privacy is important to us. In the first email we send to you, we’ll include a n on-disclosure agreement , guaranteeing that the information you share with us is used only for our consultation together. We take other precautions, as well–our email servers are with Google, whose email and cloud storage solutions adhere to ISO 27001 and other independent security standards.

Will the price be reduced if I don't urgently need the work?

In determining the cost for the dissertation assistance we provide, we assess both (a) what’s needed and (b) the timeline. We’re pretty fast : Our work is done within 2-3 weeks. During that time, we ensure that we adhere to all guidelines —this reduces the number of revisions that would come with work thrown together hastily, resulting in much faster approval.

When we can have flexibility in our normal time frame, we’re able to leverage resources more efficiently and pass those savings to you . Of course, what’s needed to reach final approval won’t change, but we can certainly provide at least a modest discount when we get more time.  

Can you reduce the plagiarism score of my dissertation ?

It’s common for candidates to struggle with high similarity scores from checkers like Turnitin. We can address plagiarism issues so that you can resubmit and reach approval.

Can I set up a payment plan ?

Of course! We do this automatically for clients, as we divide the cost of each project into installments. Specifically, we use milestone-based payments where, after an initial payment for us to get started, all subsequent payments come with the receipt of work from us. This way, you make payments only as you progress toward approval.

Through comprehensive support that lasts to final approval, the team at Optimum can help you save on tuition costs and expand your bandwidth so you can devote time and attention to what matters . We’d love to talk about our dissertation research expertise and share insights that light the way forward. Reach out by phone at 984-222-7122 or email us at [email protected] .

What Professional Service Firms Must Do to Thrive

  • Ashish Nanda
  • Das Narayandas

thesis professional service firms

During economic slowdowns, consulting, law, and accounting firms often start offering services and taking on clients they really shouldn’t, just to keep the lights on. This path is perilous. If a firm’s practices have a diffuse mix of clients and unclear strategic positioning, it will weaken the firm’s market profile and lead to internal conflicts, especially about the organization’s future direction.

This article presents two tools that professional service firms can use to manage their client mix and optimize their strategic position. The first is the practice spectrum. All practices fall on a continuum of sophistication that ranges from “commodity” to “rocket science.” Any position on this spectrum can be profitable, though the forces driving profits change as you move along it—as do the capabilities and skills required. Successful practices understand their true position on the spectrum and know which performance levers to pull.

The second tool is the client portfolio matrix, which separates clients into four categories on the basis of cost to serve and willingness to pay. Rather than spreading clients across all four, firms should focus their acquisition efforts and follow different relationship strategies for each type of client.

They have to tightly align their practices and clients.

Idea in Brief

The challenge.

Amid the pandemic and economic crisis, professional service firms are offering services and taking on clients they should never have considered, just to shore up billings.

The Problem

When a firm’s practices have a diffuse mix of clients and unclear strategic positioning, it weakens the firm’s market profile and leads to internal conflicts, particularly about the firm’s future direction.

The Solution

Practice leaders can use two tools—the practice spectrum and the client portfolio matrix —to make judicious decisions about clients and ensure that their firm has developed the right talent and capabilities to serve them.

When the going gets tough, companies often get desperate. So it should be no surprise that during the coronavirus pandemic and the concomitant economic crisis, professional service firms (PSFs) have been chasing after all kinds of business just to keep the lights on. We see this over and over: consultancies, law firms, accounting firms, and the like offering services and signing up clients they should never have considered. This approach to shoring up billings is perilous.

The 2021 Top 100 Professional Services Firms: Banking on a Boom

brand new road

Owners frequently call in professional services firms to streamline projects to completion and keep a pulse on the market. Lately, firms agree, that pulse is racing. Projects shelved last year are quickly rebooting while newer, more complex construction programs fill pipelines, driving many owners to seek support beyond their usual teams to manage the volume.

No firm can predict the future, but professional services firms can help owners figure out what might come next. “As we recover from the pandemic, there’s an unspoken understanding that our industry is anticipating an unprecedented volume of infrastructure work ahead,” says Steve Fleck, Stantec executive vice president and chief practice and project officer. Anticipation only adds fuel to an already fiery market, Fleck says, and that is also a major plot point behind 2021 Top 100 Professional Services Firms rankings.

Although the aggregate construction management and program management revenue from the Top 100 was down 5.8% overall in 2020 compared to 2019, median firm revenue was up 14.05% to $43.6 million, from $38.05 million—which signals that volume is growing among ranked firms of all sizes. Going into the 2021-22 post-pandemic cycles, firms anticipate projects of all sizes vying for scarce market resources.

“The influx of current and upcoming work is creating a war on talent to attract experienced project management leaders,” Fleck says, and firms are racing to grab the top talent they need to meet the demands of clients. Many of those needs have transformed over the course of the pandemic.

Different Business Than Usual

With early pandemic chaos still fresh in mind, more owners want operations resilience and help packaging their projects into well-planned, coherent programs, explains Michael B. Smith, Americas president of Hill International. It is a different approach from the usual siloed project system.

“Clients, especially in the public infrastructure sectors where Hill is particularly strong, are recovering quickly from the pandemic and in some cases are accelerating their project plans to make up for lost time,” says Smith. But beyond timelines, clients aren’t after a quick fix, he says. “We find that owners are demanding a more comprehensive assessment of how their program investments provide long-term value to their organizations,” Smith explains. That includes support to understand how “future disruptions can be anticipated, minimized and/or mitigated,” he adds.

Last year, domestically, Top 100 services firm revenue fell 9.9% while international revenue rose 8% (see chart, p. 46). Homing in on those percentages, the major difference in revenue appears in the top five rankings, which decreased by 15%— a more than $2.4 billion drop. All firms ranked in last year’s top 10 filed this year, so the decreased revenue could be the result of firms being more selective or sector slowdowns during the pandemic.

Ranking data shows there are seven firms new to the Top 100 list and to ENR survey rankings, including Galaxy Builders Ltd., Industrial Project Innovation LLC (IPI), Horne LLP, Hudson Meridian Construction Group, Ardmore Roderick, Entech Engineering Inc. and RGM Kramer Inc. Among those firms, many reported that their performance over the last few years is a deciding factor in filing this year. 

“The ability to continue business despite adverse conditions is now a standard program management  offering and is getting much more attention today than pre-COVID-19,” says Smith about the changing market for services firms. “We see clients adding a PgM, PM or CM function to their teams. This is true of all delivery methods, including design-build, progressive design-build, construction management-at-risk and integrated project delivery, as well as more vanilla types of contracts.”

To navigate pandemic-induced supply chain issues and a tight labor market, owners don’t want business as usual from services firms, Smith says—they seek deft project delivery and depth of knowledge. “Whether it’s identifying opportunities for cost savings during design or possible ways to accelerate a construction schedule, having an unbiased [subject matter expert] perspective on the team just makes sense when delivering a project of any complexity or scale,” he says.

Risks and Rewards

Although the worst of the COVID-19 pandemic seems to be in the rearview mirror, owners recognize that markets are still reeling from residual effects. As a result, there is heightened sensitivity around cost certainty and risk control, says John Robbins, managing director for the USA at Turner & Townsend.  “One of the biggest priority shifts has been toward risk assessment. This global event completely reframed how our clients think about cost certainty, contract  and commercial agreements, supply chains and business continuity,” says Robbins. 

“Many clients are asking us how best to set up processes and assurance to manage capital programs through life-changing events like COVID-19,” he adds. “We are helping clients look at contingency plans and how to set up systems in more resilient ways to manage through similar situations.”

The hope is that early precautions will reward owners in the long-term and decrease risk, Robbins points out. “Many, if not most, businesses have had a very tough fiscal year negotiating through the pandemic and keeping their capital projects afloat,” he says. “Added to that are the significant supply chain disruptions and fluctuations in construction materials, such as wood, steel and concrete products, as well as commodity prices.”

A positive result, EnTech Engineering reports, is that clients are more open to the flexibility that new technology provides, such as virtual meetings, jobsite inspections and 3D design collaboration. “Project owners have always placed a heavy emphasis on efficient project delivery, but the pandemic has caused an even greater focus on schedule and budget,” says Sue Bayat, founder and president of EnTech. “This has helped accelerate the adoption of advanced technologies, like BIM, as owners look for smarter solutions that help deliver projects faster and more economically.”

How well professional services firms can help owners maneuver through market conditions and avoid risk will be a major determinant of success next year, says Christopher Payne, president and CEO of McDonough Bolyard Peck Inc.

“At a high level, our clients are really not as confident in what they’re trying to build, given the changes we’ve seen,” he says. “We’re seeing more curiosity from clients about prefabricated and off-site assembly to help control schedule and reduce the risk of on-site construction.” 

Payne adds that “as a services provider, we’re adapting our thinking to how we can extend our expertise across the whole supply chain.”

Kegel, Jakob. "Knowledge in Professional Service Firms : Perceptions among auditors in Malta." Thesis, Jönköping University, JIBS, Business Administration, 2007. http://urn.kb.se/resolve?urn=urn:nbn:se:hj:diva-636.

Background: In the last decade the interest in the “knowledge economy”has grown both in the popular press and in academia. Peter Drucker is arguing that today ”knowledge is the only meaningful resource…”. Professional Service Firms (PSF) is a group of heterogeneous companies more knowledge intensive than most organizations.

Problem: Even though all PSFs are dependent on knowledge as their main factor of production, this dependence varies with firm type. In pursuit of higher margins amid strong competition and increasing regulation many audit firms in Malta are moving away from procedure based services towards expertise-based.

Purpose: The purpose of this thesis is to investigate and describe how practitioners in procedure- based professional service firms in Malta perceive knowledge. An attempt will be made to interpret how this perception may affect the firm’s ability to diversify away from procedure based offerings.

Method: This thesis uses a qualitative method focused on interviews to collect the empirical data. The analysis of the empirical material has been inspired by the hermeneutic school of thought.

Conclusions: Unsurprisingly the interviewees perceived knowledge as the tool they need to perform their job. Knowledge was said to be considered important, but the empirical results reveal a surprisingly low sophistication in the understanding of the concept. The dramatically increasing complexity in the audit firms’ operating environment, caused by rapid changes in regulation and standards, is putting pressure on the firms. Many audit firms respond by attempting to diversify into less regulated areas such as consulting. Since the importance and usage of knowledge is different between a procedure-based operation such as an audit firm and an expertise-based operation such as a consulting firm, diversification from one type to the other will prove difficult.

AbstractPurposeTo study which and how project management methodologies are applied in consulting firmsApproachThe study begins by reviewing literature on Traditional Project Management (TPM) andAgile Project Management (APM) methodologies ending with characteristics of the twomethodologies that identify a project as applying one methodology or another. The literaturethen reviews the nature of consulting firms emphasising on elements such as the professional,professional services and professional service firms before reviewing how projects areimplemented in consulting firms. A case study design is adopted and semi-structuredinterviews were conducted with PricewaterhouseCoopers-Ghana staff. Patterns from theinterviews are identified and compared with the characteristics of both Traditional and Agileproject management before drawing conclusions on which methodologies are applied andhow they are applied. Since APM is presumed to deal with problems of TPM in complexenvironments, challenges in applying TPM in consulting firms are assessed and the extent towhich APM responds to those challenges are also discussed.FindingsThe findings indicate that TPM is applied in consulting firms mainly for structured projects,whilst APM methods are also applied for some structured projects but very much forunstructured and ‘executory’ projects. APM also deals with some challenges of TPM butthose which are organisation related are not solved by applying APM methods.Research limitationThe limited number of people interviewed for this research is one key issue that limitsgeneralization to all consulting firms. However, it is hoped that this work serves as a basis forfurther research in this field.Practical implicationsThe study shows that whilst TPM will continuously be applied in consulting firms due to thenature of some projects, APM can also be applied to the benefit of consulting projects that areunstructured and ‘executory’. Therefore consulting firms do not need to ‘force’ structure intoall projects.Paper typeMasters Thesis – Research paperKeywordsTraditional project management, agile project management, consulting firms, professional,professional service, professional service firms
