Deltek’s 2019 A/E Clarity Report
For the past 40 years, the Deltek Clarity Architecture & Engineering Industry Study has retained notoriety as one of the world’s most sought-after AE Industry reports. In partnership with ACEC, ACEC Canada, SMPS, and AIA, Deltek surveyed over 700 participating firms (2,582 individuals) of all shapes, sizes, and disciplines from across the United States and in Canada to create the 40th Deltek Clarity A&E Industry Study.
In this year’s study, Deltek focuses on technology trends, financial statements, business development, project management and human capital management forecasts and trends that will impact AE firms throughout 2019 and beyond.
Surveyed directly from key decision makers, the Clarity report provides an impressive array of insights into the KPI’s that impact A/E firms the most.
