“I would imagine that there are probably many consultants who eventually cross the bridge into corporate training. In reality, it is the only way to provide clients with something more tangible than advice and it is a natural step up for us to take. I have always enjoyed my consulting career and have worked for EY, BCG, KPMG and IBM in my time. I have also worked independently for a number of years as well. However, working as a Learning Provider at Appleton Greene has really opened my eyes and provided me with the opportunity to package my knowledge and experience into a product which is both unique and easy to understand. I am a cup half full kind of person, so I would never look back with any regrets, but I would certainly have been a lot better off financially, had I done this 20 years ago. I am however just grateful that I have taken the plunge now.”

Management consulting, the practice of helping organizations to improve their performance, operates primarily through the analysis of existing organizational problems and the development of plans for improvement. Organizations may draw upon the services of management consultants for a number of reasons, including gaining external (and presumably objective) advice and access to the consultants’ specialized expertise. Consultancies may also provide organizational change-management assistance, development of coaching skills, process analysis, technology implementation, strategy development, or operational improvement services. Management consultants often bring their own proprietary methodologies or frameworks to guide the identification of problems and to serve as the basis for recommendations for more effective or efficient ways of performing work tasks. Management consulting has grown quickly, with growth rates of the industry exceeding 20% during the past 30 years. As a business service, consulting remains highly cyclical and linked to overall economic conditions. Currently, there are three main types of consulting firms. Large, diversified organizations, Medium-sized management consultancies and boutique firms that have focused areas of consulting expertise in specific industries, functional areas, technologies, or regions of the world. The value of the management & marketing consultancy market is calculated as the total revenues received for the provision of corporate strategy services, operations management services, information technology solutions, human resource management services and outsourcing services. The global management & marketing consultancy market has total revenues of $305.0bn, representing a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 3%. The operations management segment is the market’s most lucrative, with total revenues of $93bn, equivalent to 30.5% of the market’s overall value. The performance of the market is forecast to accelerate, with an anticipated CAGR of 7% during the next 5 years, which is expected to drive the market to a value of $427.9bn.
