As a strategic business consultant, your clients may be very clear about the goals they want to accomplish and the benefits they want to reap, but they may not be quite so clear about how to actually achieve those results. Consequently, each day, your work product is designed by analyzing, defining, and meeting your clients’ expectations, and those are constantly changing based on the work that your client does.
Whether you are managing one or multiple clients, you are probably performing a wide variety of services, all under the title of "consultant," that differ significantly from one project to another. Capturing the full cost of your work may be more complicated simply because the value you offer is spread across so many disciplines and industries.
Strategy creation guides a corporation's sustainability, underscores its competitive advantage and generates its potential for profitability. Professionals who offer strategic consulting services must be able to scrutinize all the disparate elements that go into their client's businesses, then craft a way forward that will allow that company to grow. Ergo, the strategic consultant is often the master of many skills, each of which provides a distinct value to the customer. Accounting for those services in a way that maximizes their value for both the professional and the client is, in itself, a valuable skill-set.
