Throughout the engaging webinar, we will be exploring the key steps in a consulting engagement, some of the pitfalls to avoid, and how to build on your personal strengths for success in consulting. We will walk through each of the major steps in a consulting engagement, what contributes to success of each, and how you can navigate those critical choices about who is the client, what is the work, who is involved, what is the product, what is your role, and how that is different from the role of the project sponsor – or the project leader.
Join us for an interesting and informative session which will help prepare you to navigate through the consulting process.
