The Project Management Consultant
What does a consultant really do? What is #projectmanagementconsultancy? There is a lot of questions around this topic, but also a lot of misconception.
If you are hired to manage projects for a client, then you are a freelance #projectmanager, but not a consultant. A consultant is usually an established and very experienced #projectmanager, who has experience in the specific area he is engaged for. Consultancy contracts are specific and clearly scoped. With that a consultancy contract is always time bound. Usually a consultant helps set up processes, systems and / or department or is specifically training and / or mentoring project managers. Let's start off by looking what PMI says about this topic. https://www.pmi.org/learning/library/become-project-management-consultant-6101
