Job Role


The possible scope and impact of the Business Consultant role is quite significant in relation to client transformation and delivering planned change and benefit. A successful Business Change Consultant will prove to be effective within complex stakeholder landscapes by being a trusted advisor to Programme and Project Managers and other key stakeholders. It is an empowering role that helps to ‘make change happen’. It is also a role that is involved throughout the full lifecycle of projects and programmes from early visioning / baselining activities through to a focus on sustainability, transition to business as usual and the delivery of benefits. 


All business consultancy engagements start by understanding the client’s business in terms of strategy, people and processes (including enabling technology). Whilst this understanding can be derived in part through existing information sources it is often best identified through primary data acquisition (workshops and stakeholder interviews for example).


The data collected is used to construct and validate a view of the “as is” situation, and clarify an organisation’s plans for a “to be” or improved future state. Often the “to be” state is vague and a large part of the business consultant’s role is centred on assisting clients in defining this agreed and achievable destination.


Once these two states are defined a route map leading toward the aims and goals of the organisation can be defined. The main aim of all business consulting engagements is to help clients transform and achieve their stated goals. This transition often involves change in all three core business consulting areas (people, business processes and enabling technology).


Business consultants help businesses implement these changes at all stages within a programme or project: business justification; planning for business change; helping clients to implement change across the business and also ensuring that the expected level of change is sustainable.


Common role accountabilities 


  • Lead analysis in areas where the consultant has experience.
  • Lead client engagement on specific sections of a project or programme.
  • Lead small workshops and interviews to capture information from key stakeholders.
  • Plan and Present core information to stakeholder groups to assist in change activities.
  • Coach other members of staff to help them develop core techniques.
