Why Hire a Consultant? First, let's define what we mean when we use the term consultant.
By consultant, we mean someone who offers expertise in a specialized field for a limited duration, usually to address a clients critical need.
Consultants in general do the following things.
They bring temporary expertise that supplements your staff’s knowledge.
They help solve special problems or do specialized work.
They help you obtain expertise and quality on your project that you might otherwise not have been able to afford to hire on staff.
They provide an objective un-biased voice.
They provide leadership from an expert, as sometimes it's only the opinion of "the expert" that counts.
They get the job done efficiently. A consultant, guided by expertise and experience, is more likely to get the job done right the first time.
They ask the right questions so as to offer the correct solutions.
There's an old story about a company that calls in a consultant because a critical assembly line machine is down, and it's costing the company hundreds of thousands of dollars an hour.
The consultant arrives, looks the machine up and down, and then whacks it with a hammer.
Amazingly, it starts working and the assembly line comes to life, and the factory is back making its products again.
Soon, the consultant's bill arrives: $10,000.
Outraged, the foreman demands an itemized account, which the consultant gladly provides: "Hitting machine with hammer: $1. Knowing where to hit the machine: $9,999."
As this story simply illustrates, you call a consultant when you're willing to pay for someone's deep knowledge, to avoid costly mistakes, or quickly recover from a problem that has arisen or a mistake that has been made.
