Commissioning Consultancy: Managing Outside Expertise to Improve Your Services
Bringing in extra skilled help from outside your organisation or partnership can be expensive, unpredictable and potentially full of pitfalls. If you commission such help, it is your responsibility to ensure that you get the best results you can by getting the right type of help. If you are a "skilled outsider", offering consultancy, training, project management, or research, then it is your responsibility to assist the person who commissions your work. This book could help you to undertake this potentially complicated course of action together. This book explores what consultants can do; how to find and select the right consultant; how to manage a consultant to get the results you want and how to forestall or overcome any problems that arise between commissioner and consultant.
