What do consulting firms base their right to exist on? One key feature of the industry is the so-called 'knowledge advantage’ that consultancy firms hold in relation to their clients. Consultancy firms are hired to help their clients with a dilemma, for which specialist expertise or knowledge is needed which is otherwise lacking on the clients’ end.
Another feature is that consultancy firms form an independent party, which can give the client an objective perspective on the problems their organisation struggles with, and can offer them solutions toward the problem. Involving a consultancy firm can also, in some cases, be more cost effective than if an organisation where to hire experts themselves. Furthermore, an organisation often simply does not have sufficient capacity to manage its change portfolio, which, can instead be done by hiring an external consultancy firm.
