Like any consulting service, a PM consultant provides expert advice to a business or team. Typically companies hire project management consultants when they lack experience in managing large or complex projects. The consultant provides impartial, third-party insights and recommendations. Having an expert like this on the project management team reduces the steepness of the learning curve and helps to avoid common pitfalls.
A consultant does not replace the project manager. Instead, they augment the team and support. Some of the standard services that a consultant provides are:
- Review of processes and capabilities of the project team
- Risk and weakness assessment of the processes and controls
- Recommendations for improvements
- Implementation support for improvements, new tools, or processes
- Reporting support
- Change management
