Consultants are often being stereotyped: we are said to be expensive, to say what the customer has known for a long time, and to be long gone when the effects of our activity become apparent in the company. After more than 20 years of experience in different companies of Life Sciences, of which 10 years were spent in a large medical technology corporation I am fully aware of that side’s considerations.
I don’t want to rule out that there are indeed some „colleagues“ who fall in line with that profile. With my offering I aim to loosen those deeply rooted preconceptions and I kindly ask you to give room to the following thoughts: You don’t get to work as a consultant straight out of university. Our work is characterized by a deep knowledge that stems from long years of professional and emotional practical experience. We as consultants get around in a wide variety of companies and gain broad insight in technologies, production processes and, last but not least, company structures.
Therefore, we are in a position to select the technological and organizational option that works best for your company and to adapt it to your specifications. Quite often consultants are called in to cover short term staff shortages or temporary needs, for example before an audit or to handle an individual project with a clearly defined time limit. In these cases, we are in a position to take immediate action, often without overly long training times. Since our contract with your company doesn’t fall under labour legislation the periods of notice are shorter and we do not claim any compensations. A consultant gets only paid for his work, there is no payment due in times of sickness or absence, for example during holidays or training.
