Are one stop shops key to cracking the global market?


Is this consolidation / one stop shop phenomenon really such a new trend? The big consultants (Mott MacDonald, Arup,Atkins, Bechtel) have pursued the "massively multidisipilnary" model for decades. More recently, all have made aquisitions and pushed their organic growth to diversify their skills base further. It a reflection of what is happening in many other industries - with flat growth, how else to proceede other than to find new markets? And how else to do this than by diversifying and expanding capability to move forward on as many fronts as possible?
