Management Consultants solve problems, typically in finance and business sectors. However consultants get clients from almost every industry. So any industry expert can become a consultant, normally with an additional qualification like MBA.

What do Management Consultants do?

  1. Providing information to a client.
  2. Solving a client’s problems.
  3. Making a diagnosis, which may necessitate redefinition of the problem.
  4. Making recommendations based on the diagnosis.
  5. Assisting with implementation of recommended solutions.
  6. Building a consensus and commitment around corrective action.
  7. Facilitating client learning—that is, teaching clients how to resolve similar problems in the future.
  8. Permanently improving organizational effectiveness.
