Considerations for Finding a Consultant

To most people, consulting is an intangible: a service that cannot be measured.

This creates difficulty in assessing the need for a consultant, as well as establishing value for services rendered. Much of the difficulty can be mitigated by determing.:

  • Why consulting is being considered (reasons)
  • What is to happen as a result of the consulting engagement (results)
  • How the consulting can be implemented (action plan)

A consulting engagement creates value for the the client by:

  • Identifying problems
  • Recommending remedies and opinions
  • Formulating a position and its implementation
  • Expenditing a result
  • Identifying tasks with implementation time frames
  • The consultant's value rests in the fact that it is an independent third person's viewpoint and expertise.

Key issues that should be clarified with your consultant:

  • The objective, scope and nature of the assignment
  • A summary of the situation and potential consulting strategies
  • The potential results to be generated from the consultancy
  • The qualifications of the consultant
  • The prospect start and end dates of the assignment
  • The fee structure
