6 Tips for Hiring a Consultant

Small businesses may not have much experience with consultants, and they may have even less idea of how to use them effectively. You should not hire a consultant before you really know how to use them to their fullest ability. In a YouTube video, Amy Schmittauer discusses the six tips to know about this:

  1. Know your contract terms and the goal of the engagement.
  2. Assume your consultant understands the contract terms.
  3. Be aware of what falls in and outside of the contract’s scope.
  4. Make consultants’ results measurable.
  5. Be realistic about the project timeline.
  6. Assume your consultant has other consultants.

Watch the short video above for the details.
