The Two Types of Consultants

  • Post category:General

Management consultants can be broken in two categories: strategy and operations. Strategy consultants advise management teams on top-level decisions such as prioritizing new markets to enter, developing price strategies, determining mergers and acquisitions targets, identifying research and development strategy, determining how to structure an organization and how to deal with competitive threats.

Operations consulting is more about implementing strategy – for instance, creating and monitoring the plan, developing resource allocations and providing the hands-on expertise to implement various business strategies. Examples include putting new pricing strategies in place, integrating newly acquired organization’s systems and processes, providing the hands-on expertise to create or merge new organization structures, providing the project management and the specialty expertise to launch new products.

VERVE’s value add is in assisting our clients implement those business strategies that keep you up at night.
