Consultants occupy a critical position in PCG and are key to the management team in achieving business objectives. In general, they play one of two roles in the firm. In the consulting practice, they represent an area of expertise essential to one or more product lines. This ability puts them in the position of managing complex projects and/or producing sophisticated deliverables for a number of different projects. Their experience and knowledge of the product lines allows them to train and supervise staff, work independently with minimal supervision, serve as an internal consultant to other projects or product lines, play a key role in proposals and sales presentations, and present at conferences. In operations projects, Consultants may oversee substantial projects involving multiple staff and complex operations. They are often the primary point of client contact and are responsible for managing most deliverables and services. In both cases, Consultants are essential to a product line. Consultants serve as role models for business analysts and administrative staff, always employing sound business and professional judgment in their activities.
