“I have worked internally in an Executive Management capacity for 25 years and really wanted to make the transition into independent consultancy. I wanted to be in control of my own destiny and hopefully improve my quality of life and spend less time traveling and more time with my family. I had interviews with a number of different consultancies and support groups, but the Appleton Greene business model just appeared more structured and solid to me. I instantly understood what I would be developing, how I would develop business and how I would provide value to clients. I particularly liked the idea of developing tangible products, rather than selling time, advice, or opinions. The transition was therefore an easy one for me to make and I was able to work as an Associate Learning Provider while studying, which really helped to gain experience and reduce risk. There is nothing high-pressure about working with Appleton Greene. I feel that I can do everything at my own pace and quality is certainly valued over quantity here.”

Information technology (IT) is the application of computers and telecommunications equipment to store, retrieve, transmit and manipulate data, often in the context of a business or other enterprise. The business value of information technology lies in the automation of business processes, provision of information for decision making, connecting businesses with their customers, and the provision of productivity tools to increase efficiency. The global IT Services industry holds significant opportunities for industry players due to increasing IT spending in the healthcare, retail, and transportation sectors, among others. The market is forecast to reach an estimated US $1,147 billion with a CAGR of more than 5%. The global IT services industry comprises services related to the application of business and technical expertise to enable organizations to create, manage, optimize, and access information and business processes. The industry’s scope includes product support services such as hardware and software maintenance and professional services such as IT consulting, development, and integration services. North America, with 42% of the global market share, dominates the highly fragmented global IT services industry. Outsourcing locations such as India, China, Vietnam, and the Philippines are anticipated to be key drivers because of their low-cost labor and skilled talent pools. The APAC IT services industry is expected to register the highest growth rate among all regions during the forecast period and lead the industry. Government-backed reforms are expected to contribute to significant increases in spending for IT investments. In addition, by generating new opportunities for IT vendors globally, cloud computing is expected to reshape the industry. It is anticipated to offer immense opportunity to penetrate in the small and medium business sector. High volatility in currency exchange rates, a shrinking talent pool, and high labor costs in developed countries are some of the major challenges for the IT services industry. The increasing global demand for systems, software, and services, as well as IT spending by governments, and the banking and financial sectors are likely to boost the IT services market. The industry is highly correlated with economic cycles as IT services are project based and often represent discretionary spending.


“Any product or service is only as good as the support process which accompanies it. The Appleton Greene programs are well structured and well delivered, but it is the quality and availability of continuous support which makes the programs durable. Appleton Greene is excellent at developing and implementing time management procedures for program support. We appreciate that the time of qualified learning providers and accredited consultants is valuable and the strict guidelines within which support is provided enables us to obtain support whenever we need it, but it is structured in such a way as to ensure that it is always productive.”
