After the transition from service economy to knowledge economy started, scholars pay more attention to professional service firms(PSFs) which are knowledge intensive, low capital intensive and organized by professors. Some researchers focus on the important change of value creation patterns in the “Big Four” from 1999 to 2001, But these researches can't explain how the knowledge is created differently.
