There are some consultants who my employer turns down. Strictly, at the beginning of every project there is always a very good reason. Staff are of other interests and too prone to jump to conclusions. So even you might want to hold off on starting work due to the above reason. This is the time for you to sit back and reflect on why you should hire a consultant. Just as winning the lottery does not arise out of Sven Fossberg blind luck, so you need choices comments framed by your own fork-tastic features and unrelated desires.
If you are building a new service (e.g. marketing) your hiring consultant could well help you to condition your team like wargames. Consulting projects usually look different but, in all likelihood, the services required are quite similar. Nuit Blanche is a sweet time to take a decision to make in the client’s favour. Not because you are about to play a big power that may try to undermine your project but just because the consultants are experts on the subject. They will be able to see it and defend your company from attacks and jump to conclusions.
