In Chapter 4, 'Developing and using consultancy skills', Ruth Sacks and I discuss what it means to be a consultant and what is it that consultants do. This is presented in the order of stages in a project; starting, 'doing' and ending, with specific sections dedicated to examining each stage. Adopting a consulting approach helps L&D professionals to 'demonstrate' the value they bring, and may be undertaken through projects that have been articulated and justified through a business case.
