Client Situation

Bullhorn’s marketplace success put new and increasing demands on its professional services capabilities. An expansion to new segments was driving a need for modifications to its approach to delivery and resourcing. Continued company business growth created an opportunity for PS to support revenue and profit expansion; however, it also put increasing demands on managing a greater breadth and scale of projects. Bullhorn needed to better understand how to structure and run its professional services organization (PSO) to meet the objective of positioning the PSO for profitable growth and support of the company’s overall direction.

The Solution

RTM Consulting’s Business Optimization Practice helped Bullhorn achieve performance improvements through a series of enhancements to its PS strategy and operations:

  • Aligning overall operations with a revised PS Charter to provide clarity and organizational awareness and readiness to execute
  • Deployment of Just-in-Time Resourcing® to effectively align resources to areas of need, handle the growth in demand, and create more predictability for customers, employees, and Bullhorn PS
  • Deployment of a Project Management Office to define and govern the use of a consistent approach to delivery

The Result

By leveraging the diagnostic and implementation capabilities of RTM Consulting’s Business Optimization Practice, Bullhorn is achieving performance improvements throughout its PS Organization.

  • Improved PS profitability by over 80%
  • Improved resource utilization by nearly 50% – resulting in consistent achievement of 70%+
