The situations that warrant engaging an Operations Consultant are too numerous, and too varied, to ever hope to describe them all in any detail. Some are purely technical, while others involve less-concrete concerns inherent in group dynamics. Some require a response to a short-term crisis, or disaster recovery, while others require the development of a long-term strategy. Some will magnify the challenges by involving multiple levels of management and various groups, internal and external to the organization. These groups may be geographically distant and culturally disparate. They will likely have differing responsibilities, motivations, and levels of autonomy.
While not comprehensive, the preceding should give one a sense of how many “moving parts” could be present in any planning or decision-making process or project execution. The following 7 Reasons to Hire an Operations Consultant is intended to facilitate focus amid such chaos. It can be used to help formulate your thoughts on the situation you face, define your needs, and facilitate preliminary communications with an Operations Consultant.
I hope you have found this sufficiently brief and clarifying. If I can help you with this analysis, please feel free to contact me.
