The Unique Value of External Consultants

Updated: Jan 14

Last week, while moderating a panel discussion on the pivotal role of external consultants in supporting organizations on their journey towards Operational Excellence (OpEX), during the second edition of OPEXKsa in KSA, I had the privilege of hearing valuable insights from fellow consultants. It was a dynamic exchange, and what stood out was the common thread that unites us as consultants — a relentless focus on outcomes, value addition, and the development of our clients' internal capabilities to ensure long-term success, extending far beyond individual projects.

The true differentiator of Consultancy Teams is in their unique approach to providing Value

  • Problem Solvers with Creativity and Critical Thinking: Successful consultants act as problem solvers who tackle challenges with creativity and critical thinking. They provide practical solutions that address root causes, refusing to rely on cookie-cutter approaches. Each solution is meticulously crafted, adhering to industry best practices.

  • Flexibility and Adaptability: Recognizing that client needs and market conditions are ever-evolving, successful consultants remain flexible and open to change. They continuously adapt their approaches and services to stay relevant and effective.

  • Positive Mindset and Commitment to Improvement: Challenges are an inherent part of the consulting landscape. However, successful consultants approach these challenges with a positive mindset. They actively seek feedback from clients and peers, striving for continuous improvement and skill refinement.
