Small business consulting has come a long way in the past few decades. It has helped businesses (both small and large) add value to what they offer as entities. Organizations hire the services of management consultants for a number of reasons, including gaining external (and presumably objective) advice, access to the consultants’ specialized expertise, or simply as extra temporary help during a one-time project, where the hiring of more permanent employees is not required. In other words, when business owners lack the skills they need to take their businesses to the next level, they seek the assistance of a consultant.
A small business consultant may not get paid when the business owner does not see any significant improvement on his business. It is a ‘no win, no fee’ situation.
