Differentiate Yourself From Internal Resources. Here’s How

Consultants, especially early-stage ones, often focus on solving small problems, filling in for executives, or providing short-term fixes. 🛠

This approach, while useful, limits the potential for landing large deals. To secure substantial contracts, consultants should think in terms of transformation. The goal is to address significant, million-dollar+ problems by offering transformational solutions that change organizations, departments, or processes.

Clients often face big, thorny problems and have an emotional need to achieve a dream outcome, such as reaching a revenue milestone, completing an IT transformation, or retaining top talent.

The value of a consultant lies in their ability to view problems from multiple perspectives (30,000-foot, 5,000-foot, and ground level) and implement cohesive solutions that internal employees, despite their seniority, might miss.

Having a structured process and framework for delivering transformational change can distinguish a consultant from internal staff and ensure they meet the client’s aspirational goals.
