I met a business/management consultant 2 months ago working in one of the top business consulting firms.
He explained to us that he, as a Business Consultant, can successfully manage projects more effectively and efficiently than a Project Manager. According to him, a Project Manager is a focused person, while a Business Management Consultant is a multi-focus expert. It helps him to do better planning, decision making, and long-term goal achievements.
I always thought a Project Manager is better than a Business Management Consultant. But now, after understanding what a Business Management Consultant can do, my opinion has changed.
I read this article and it seems like a Management Business Consultant is better than a Project Manager.
Though, not all Management Consultants are not better; only the right one.
Who is better at managing projects? A Project Manager or a Business/Management Consultant?
