What is management consulting?

Companies in today’s dynamic environment, are awash with various challenges and complexities. Important aspects of business - Customers, Business Processes, HR, Finance, etc are usually run with traditional methods. Information is usually gathered but not analyzed, decisions are made on the basis of guesses, not facts. Moreover, they lack tools, methods and expertise for tackling problems. Therefore, companies usually maintain the status quo, and opportunities go unnoticed.

Hence, management consulting comes into the picture. Management consulting primarily supports companies to improve their performance and decision making, through analysis of organizational problems and development of fact-based strategies and activities. Management consultants bring innovative ideas and techniques to make sure the best decisions are taken for their clients’ complex business problems.
