Management consultants develop, recommend, and implement business improvements for companies. In order to do this, they consult with company leaders to identify the business's strengths and weaknesses in order to develop an improvement plan. Additionally, they train clients on business development processes. Occasionally management consultants will deal with modeling, analysis, and research for specific business design efforts. This is a highly team-focused career. Management consultants need to be customer-focused and able to communicate clearly, both verbally and in writing, with their clients. They need to be flexible and adaptable in order to accommodate their clients' specific needs. Candidates for these positions must have demonstrated strong leadership skills in previous positions, as management consulting is all about leadership and directing.
