Why engage a management consultant
Organizations employ external consultants for a variety of reasons. Chief among them would be for the consultants’ specialized knowledge in domains which the organization either does not have, or is not required to have at such an in-depth level. Additionally, the consultants' “outsider” status and perceived objectivity makes it easier for the management to break-down resistance and align key stakeholders. Coupled with the management consultants' exposure to a large number of organizations (and range of industries), management consultants are well suited to share business best practices to help the client move the organization forward.
