Depending on their area of expertise, professional services consultants may provide help in a variety of areas. For example, a consultant with business strategy expertise may help implement techniques allowing greater cost efficiency. Marketing specialists may help with marketing research and with building effective short- and long-term marketing plans, and operations consultants may help reduce production costs and attend to quality control issues. Human resources consultants may analyze job vacancies and help implement personnel policies. Other areas in which professional services consultants may assist a business include technology, financial planning, and legal issues.
