Like a healthcare professional, a strategic consultant's job is to diagnose a company's problems and prescribe strategies to solve them. Depending on the company, some consultants also oversee the implementation of recommended business strategies. If you have business experience and love working on complicated business and management strategies, a job as a strategy consultant may be the perfect fit. A strategy consultant works with a company's CEO, board of directors, and senior managers to provide strategic and unbiased advice for various business decisions and objectives.
Much of a strategy consultant's job involves collecting and analyzing data and other information to help inform and guide strategic recommendations.
