Role of external consultant

While external consultants may act as an educator, a catalyst for deeper change, a resource, or a facilitator, the leadership of the process remains with your firm.  It is critical that managing partners and firm management embrace, support and champion projects for which external consultants are engaged.

Some benefits to using an external consultant:

  • Clear Project Definition
  • Objectivity and Neutrality
  • Permission to State the Obvious or Uncomfortable
  • Execution and Completion of Projects
  • Lower Overhead Costs
