What is Management Consulting?
Management consulting, also known as business consulting is an independent, professional advisory service which assists managers and organizations solve management and business problems by providing expertise or objectivity that is not found in-in house. Additionally, management consulting and business consulting services help identify and capitalize on new opportunities, enhance learning, and support the facilitation and implementation of lasting change.
Management consulting and business consulting is about understanding issues, defining goals, and helping facilitate change. One method that is often employed to gain insight or provide training is the use of internal or external workshops. These workshops are designed to either extract information that will help formulate a strategy, or to teach/train a group to be better equipped with skills or information for the future.
Internal workshops work with internal stakeholders such as employees and boards of directors and would include:
- Board and Management planning sessions
- Process improvement
- Brand workshops
- Value proposition workshops
- Sales training
- Team building
External workshops work with external stakeholders such as customers and vendors and would include:
- Brand workshops
- Customer journey mapping workshops
- Focus groups
There are different levels of strategy that must be considered and flushed out to reach end goals. Each level plays an integral part in the overall strategy success and must be directly linked and measured.
- Corporate Strategy – The overarching focus for the organization as a whole
- Business Unit Strategy – Focuses on an individual business unit or market and what it needs to do to support the Corporate Strategy.
- Team or individual Strategy – Identifies what a team or individual needs to do to either support the business unit goals or to directly impact the organization goals and objectives.
Strategy is management’s game plan for strengthening the performance of the organization. Strategic planning is a long term plan of action designed to achieve a particular goal or set of goals or objectives. The strategy is the art and science of planning and marshaling resources for their most efficient and effective use.
