What Does A Consultant Do

Consultants are people hired by companies to help improve their business performances, solve problems and find new ways of doing things. They are paid to share their knowledge and expertise on matters that a business needs solving. Businesses prefer consultants over full-time employees for this because they can save costs of hiring a full-time employee. Another reason businesses hire consultants is for their fresh outlook on a problem as they are not connected to the company in any way. In short, they are hired as a catalyst for change.

Working as a consultant is known for the diverse and challenging environment while being highly rewarding and lucrative. This is why consulting has become a very popular sector for both students and professionals to put their skills to test. But what exactly do they do? They mainly have activities in two main areas – External activities on a project to project basis and supporting internal activities.

  • External Activities

These activities are always almost client related. When a consultant is brought onto one of these projects it is for one of two things, either as an advisory project or an implementation project. Advisory projects are those that involve extensive research and analysis. They often include things like strategy development, HR strategy and corporate finance. These projects often last for a couple of weeks to a few months. Implementation project, on the other hand, can take a couple of years to complete. Examples of implementation projects include strategy execution, rolling out new business practices, and ERP implementation.

  • Internal Activities

These are activities that do not involve any clients. Instead, the consultant works for the betterment of the business itself, taking care of things like the following training or researching on external publication or contributing to organizing events for the company. There is generally a hierarchy set up and consultants can climb up the ladder with every prong having a more important job. They would be in charge of things like internal management, sales and engagement management. A consultant usually partakes in internal activities when they are ‘on the bench’ which could mean they are in between projects or do not actively have any projects to work on. It is then that they shift their focus to increasing contribution to the business by conducting training programs and such for the employees.

A consultant thus has a wide range of duties to perform dependent only on what the current need is. While they do not typically need a degree to become a consultant, they need vast knowledge and experience in the field to become an accomplished consultant. It is important to note though, that consulting has a broad range of interest and practically every field offers consulting opportunities.

Five Types Of Consulting – Which Is Best For You?

Consultants are people who opt to share their knowledge and experience with a business to improve their performance, solve problems and innovate new thinking. There is a huge need for consultants in the market right now, as they are cheaper than full-time employees and offer a new perspective on a problem that might lead to its solution. But consulting is equally as challenging as it is rewarding. One of the best parts of this field is its diversity as many different types of consulting exist, each more suited for a particular type of business. Let’s look at some of these consulting types that exist.

  • Strategy Consulting

This kind of consulting deals with the long-term vision of the company. Consultants focus and assist in seeing the bigger picture and thereby identify ways to make the business more competitive and profitable in the market. They come up with strategies that help reach long-term goals and even oversee its implementation and make sure that they are cost-effective and efficient.

  • Operation Consulting

Operation consultants help clients reach their goals by overseeing their systems. They assess all levels of the clients operation including sales, production and customer service to make it as efficient as possible. They are more interested in making processes as refined as possible to save the maximum amount of money and time.

Operation consulting and strategy consulting are closely linked. While strategy consultants focus on achieving long-term goals, operation consultants make it so that these goals can be achieved. Due to this, many firms offer both these services.

  • Financial Consulting

As the name implies it has to do with money. Financial consultants look at a client’s assets and finances and put forward a plan so that the client can better manage finance of the business. This may involve a variety of things like investment strategies, taxes and everyday expenditure of running the business. It also includes advice on insurance and savings strategies.

  • Human Resource Consulting (HR.)

HR. consultants deal with the employees of a client. They help the company during recruitment and transitions by selecting people most suited for certain positions. They are responsible for employee welfare and attend to their issues. They are also responsible when there is a change in management and also take care of remuneration. They need to be very familiar with company culture and know whether two companies can work together if merged. Finally, they are also responsible for outsourcing.

  • Information Technology Consulting (IT)

This type of consultancy mainly focuses on how to better utilise technology to enhance a client’s business. This could mean building custom software for the client specific to the business’s use case or a companywide updating of the technology being used (like upgrading computers) or even testing efficiency of existing technology to better implement it.
