Nadia Kiderman has served as a consultant in many different industries during her career. The role that a consultant serves is such a critically important one; and can literally lead to rescuing a business from being on the brink of bankruptcy to being turned around into a success story. It’s worthwhile understanding and recognizing these patterns; given the value that consultants have had on a variety of different industries over the years.
For those like Nadia Kiderman who have spent considerable time investing efforts and resources on trying to revamp businesses that have suffered due to various issues, this is a role that’s incredibly important. In the private sector there exists a whole multitude of service providers who claim to be able to effectively transform businesses so that they can be more sustainable.
But the measure of an effective consultant ultimately lies in what they are able to accomplish as the end and final product for their client. For a hospital for instance hiring a hospital IT consultant makes more sense than just a general IT consultant. The final product speaks for itself; and indeed, it does speak volumes. There’s no way to fudge the numbers. There’s no way to put a happy face on a disaster. The raw numbers and circumstances of the results speak for themselves. This is what consulting is about. Can you make a difference or not? If you can, you’ll have great success and prosper as a consultant, regardless of the industry.
