Management Consulting

Experts of all kinds frequently refer to themselves as "consultants to management," but only those who advise on the management process itself can legitimately be called management consultants (though even this generalization is being challenged today).One definition that gained widespread acceptance came not from consultants themselves but from academia:

Management consulting is an advisory service contracted for and provided to organizations by specially trained and qualified persons who assist, in an objective and independent manner, the client organization to identify management problems, analyze such problems, recommend solutions to these problems, and help, when requested, in the implementation of solutions.

That the authors of this definition find it necessary to follow with a more practical definition and note that they are only half joking illustrates the difficulty that even practitioners themselves have in explaining what they do:

Management consulting is an uncertain and evolving process conducted by a foreign intruder who muddles through by performing various problem-solving activities, while trying to maintain high professional standards and still attempting to meet the needs of the client.

What is explicitly stated as well as what is implied in these two definitions point to some key conclusions:

1. Management consulting is an advisory service, not a "take charge" or decision making mode.
2. Not everyone is qualified to give this advice.
3. Objectivity and independence are essential to the consultant.
4. Not much is known about the actual process of management consulting.
5. Outsiders can be a big help in defning the problems they are called upon by insiders to solve.
