The process of management consulting involves identifying the problems or issues of a business that prevent the progress or the expected performance of an organization. It requires research and collecting data by way of interviewing clients, employees, stakeholders and the management team. It also necessitates preparing business proposals, giving presentations and workshops.

A Management consultant examines all the involving factors or issues related to identify problems thoroughly based of his or her expertise. This way, a consultant provides new knowledge by providing better results to a business organization and leading a business in the direction of success.
