What is management consulting?

In the simplest terms, a management consultancy is there to improve the operational efficiency of an organisation. This can take many forms and is often focused on advice which can help companies to reduce costs, speed up processes and increase revenue. In some cases, a management consultancy might be appointed before a product is brought to market, or alternatively, it might be asked to help an organisation ensure that its product or service remains competitive.

Unlike ourselves, there are sometimes internal management consultants who work in house for a company which they are analysing – but generally, this is not the norm. Typically, we are hired on a project by project basis, and get to work gathering and analysing information, reviewing personnel and equipment, reviewing expenditure, developing new solutions, recommending new systems, and assisting with the implementation of changes.

What are the benefits of management consulting?

So now we have outlined exactly what management consulting is, which are the benefits which you can expect after hiring a specialist firm such as JVR Consultancy? Let’s take a look:

– The bigger picture

When you are immersed in your own business day to day, it can be hard to take a step back and set the best goals which can help you grow. A management consultancy can offer objectivity and an impartial view, analysing your business and its activities without letting other factors cloud its judgement. It is a fast track to the best solutions, without the internal politics sometimes involved. In terms of giving you a competitive edge, the gap analysis provided by management consultants – assessing the gap between desired performance and actual performance – can be vital in identifying and making necessary improvements.

– The advantage of expertise

What you get with management consultants are professionals who are experienced in assessing business operations and improving them. Companies can benefit from management consultants’ previous experience in finding the best solutions for businesses in similar situations, and with similar objectives. Other specialist areas of consultancy include guidance on necessary certifications, recertifications, and advice on qualifications which are required.

– Save time

Business management can be a huge time drain if you are not careful. Hiring a management consultancy can allow you to focus on the day to day running of your business, giving a knowledgeable specialist the task of improving efficiency within your business, while you can concentrate on other areas such as internal management and business development.

– Save money

You could hire a management consultant internally, but paying a salary to a full-time employee, plus all the other costs associated with expanding your workforce can add up. The alternative is to bring in a management consultancy on a project by project basis, giving you the right kind of expertise ‘on tap’, as and when you need it. This can be more cost-effective, and give you access to the best specialist advice.

So those are a few important facets of management consultancies and their advantages. To find out how JVR Consultancy can implement game-changing, fully integrated management systems for your organisation, speak to us today on 01628 56 52 56.
