The 45th Deltek Clarity Architecture & Engineering (A&E) Industry Survey is now open. Don’t miss the chance to give your input and be a part of the longest-running, industry-leading study. Whether firms are looking to invest in an innovative solution, improve profitability, or revisit staffing needs, understanding current industry challenges and trends will set them up for success.

Last year’s survey revealed that 53% of respondents saw project management as a key area of investment, with data insight and cybersecurity sited as operational challenges. In addition, more firms are starting to offer revenue-generating technology services. Will these trends continue? What new challenges are on the horizon for next year?

By participating in the survey, you will receive a complimentary scorecard to benchmark your firm against other industry leaders across several key performance indicators (KPIs). In addition, you will be provided an advanced copy of the study. This resource is not possible without input from firms like yours.

The survey is open through March 11 at 12:00 pm to firms of all sizes willing to share their insights, metrics, and perspectives. Don’t miss your chance to be a part of this go-to resource for A&E leaders across North America.

Deltek Clarity is the industry’s longest-running survey and is produced in collaboration with the American Council of Engineering Companies (ACEC), Association of Consulting Engineering Companies (ACEC) Canada, American Institute of Architects (AIA), and Society for Marketing Professional Services (SMPS).
