Organizations large and small are frequently faced with problems they lack the resources or expertise to effectively address. When considering whether to engage a consultant to support an organization following are some of the reasons it will make sense.

Five reasons why working with a consultant makes sense:

  1. We need resources we just do not have – too many projects and too few people.
  2. We need expertise we do not have, cannot afford, and/or cannot wait to find.
  3. We need an objective “outsider’s” perspective to help us think outside the box.
  4. It is not a core competency. The skills and knowledge we need in the short term are not core to who we are or the services we provide.
  5. We only want to pay for support when we need it. We can’t afford to add to fixed overhead.

When considering engaging a consultant to support your organization, think about the five items listed above and validate their applicability to your current situation. A good consultant will need to understand why you are looking for support and what your expectations are for the relationship.
