Forrester Research is well known for its thought leaders in the technology, and more recently, social media space.
Co-author of Groundswell, Charlene Li left Forrester a little ways back to start a new consulting firm, the Altimeter Group.
Over the last several months, 2 other Forrester consultants have left the well known firm to join Charlene at Altimeter. They are Ray Wang and Jeremiah Owyang.
The Altimeter Group, based in San Mateo Califonia now has 4 partners, the 3 listed above and Deborah Schultz.
It will be interesting to follow Altimeter Group’s work and see if more Forrester employees follow this path and move to other consulting firms.
