Business/HR consulting is a growing sector of the employment and business industry. There has been no better time to join the consulting industry, based on industry growth statistics. More importantly, as businesses strive to develop their positions in the market place, improve efficiency, reduce costs, and optimize operations, consultants are used on an increasingly larger basis. If you have the burning desire think you have the necessary skills and the mindset to be a consultant this course will show you how.
In this course we look at a number of the key topics you need to know. Whether you are consulting by yourself, as a partnership, as a small team, or with a large company, we will provide you with all of the information you need to be a successful consultant. This includes consulting in any industry regardless of your level of experience. We also provide you the tools and understanding to develop strategy to deploy and be successful in your own consulting business. From choosing a business model, to determining your pricing, to managing overhead costs, then we cover the more complex tasks like developing a great marketing strategy, developing the best proposals, tips for consulting success, and implementing your recommendations. Best of all, we discuss consulting lessons learned and problems you can avoid; and end with consulting "Best Practices".
