How the Choose the Right Consultant

How the Choose the Right Consultant
August 9, 2012 at 12:00 - 1:00 PM ET
Joyce Gioia, President(The Herman Group)
Many times human resource professionals are called upon to hire a consultant and they don’t have a clue where to start. This fast-paced webinar will give you the road map you need to accomplish hiring just the right consultant for your project. We’ll begin by looking at how to design an RFP (Request For Proposal) that works for your project. Included in this area, we’ll cover nature of the engagement, scope, and deliverables. Then we’ll move along to how to develop a list of possible firms that can help, including referrals from your colleagues, web searches, and local advertising. We’ll talk about how to evaluate the ability of the firms to help. What kind of a track record does this firm have? Whom have they helped in the past? Do they have references you might call? Do you feel confident that they can help you? Do they seem trust-worthy? Do you like the people you will be working with? (Hint: Sometimes the big consulting firms will have their principals sell the engagement and their fresh MBAs perform the work.) We’ll conclude by focusing on how to avoid the pitfalls that can sabotage your project, including scope creep, lack of performance, and related to that, lack of follow-through. You want a project that runs smoothly and gives you the results you are looking for. When you use this step-by-step approach, you are much less likely to have a problem and much more likely to have an engagement that is a win-win-win for everyone involved.
