Lots of great data emerging from the USC / Holmes Report on global communications, with some particularly important implications on talent - who we hire, the skills needed, and structures for organizing them. 

Clients seem to find value from agencies in two streams - strategy/creativity, and implementation. The two are not mutually exclusive, of course, but they're drifting apart in how these services are budgeted. 

I wonder if we'll see agency models adapt, maybe something similar to the tax/audit firms in the 90s, with consultancy and support services structured separately?
