How we feel about consulting
Consulting for us, is a term for helping our clients recognize and achieve their goals faster and with less risk than on their own. Being a consultant is about gathering knowledge from different projects and bringing competence and experience in an efficient way. It’s about efficient communication, not only between the consultant and the client. It’s about creating positive atmosphere within the project team and supporting efficient, goal oriented communication between all team members. It’s not only about giving advice; it’s more about reaching the goal together as a team. It’s about understanding company culture and being able to embrace it. It’s about saying what you know, and asking what you don’t know. Consulting is about being competent, experienced, communicative and above all, honest.
