In general terms, Consulting, as a term, is used to define both an industry and the act of helping companies analyze existing arrangements and develop of plans for improvements. Companies may enlist a consultant for a variety of reasons, some of which might be (i) getting outside objective advice and/or access to a set of skills or knowledge not currently in the client company. Due to their exposure to and relationships with numerous organizations, consulting firms or consultancies (as typically referred to in the United Kingdom) are also said to be aware of industry "best practices”.
Some services that a consultant might provide are (i) change management assistance, (ii) coaching, (iii) technology implementation, (iv) strategy development, or (v) operational improvement.
Consultants generally bring their own methodologies or frameworks to guide the process, and to serve as the basis for recommendations.
