Keys to Successful Consulting Buying: Briefing and Q&A Sessions
Crafting proposals is rarely a consultant's idea of a good time. It gets even more challenging when clients fail to convey their expectations through RFPs, leaving consultants to make assumptions. This wastes time, effort, (and money) for consultants and hinders the alignment between the client’s goals and the potential consulting partners' skills, ultimately jeopardizing the project's success.
But fear not! You can make life easier for consultants by conducting a brief session as a client. It helps them understand your objectives, lets you grasp their expertise and approach, and builds that all-important personal connection. By taking this small step, you can rest assured of receiving proposals that meet your expectations and showcase the value they bring to your organization.
In our latest episode of "Buy Consulting Services Like a Pro," our fantastic host Helene delves into the nitty-gritty of hosting effective briefing and Q&A sessions with potential consulting partners.
