Being a consultant is a very different role from being in a line-management role or even being a contractor. The expectations (and rewards) are different, and you need to learn the rules of the game.
While many contractors call themselves consultants, they are, in fact, contractors. Contractors bring their skills, experience and an ability to do the job. Clients buy them for this knowledge and experience and fit them into a job/role that needs these.
What’s different about being a Consultant? They too bring their skills, experience and their ability to do the job. Importantly, they also bring intellectual property – IP – to undertake the assignment and provide a solution.
In this book, we give you over 30 simple, practical guidelines on meeting the challenges of being a consultant. From “Setting the standards” and “Controlling your career” to making sure you get paid and how to deal with the politics when you’re an outsider.
We provide advice on the do’s and don’ts of consulting and the pitfalls to avoid. Plus answers to frequently asked questions. Whether you follow the advice given is up to you. But at least you will now know the rules.
Useful advice for all would-be and experienced consultants to help you survive and thrive.
