As publishers consolidate or divest non-essential assets,
they will turn to executives with a combination of industry experience and in-depth financial management and
strategic expertise.

Perspective

Publishers of all types are facing new challenges. From the movement of titles to the ongoing, highly volatile advertising climate, it takes a strong team to navigate this environment.

Management Implications

Publishing faces challenges on both the editorial and business sides, requiring a consistent presence in the marketplace of talent.
