Effective consulting is a partnership

Some views on how to make the relationship work

A good consultant needs a good client and vice versa: good outcomes require effective partnering between client and consultant.

Be clear on the technical, process or subject matter expertise that that you are expecting from the consultant.

A critical part of the consulting process is to ask questions: this is driven by the need to help the client be clear on the problem before addressing solutions.

Recommendations should be substantiated by data and evidence, from appropriate sources which the client recognises and values.
