Management Consulting is the industry and practice of helping organizations improve their performance by analyzing existing problems and development plans for improvement. Organizations hire management consulting firms to gain external advice or when they need specialized expertise and services which are offered by consultants include strategy, operations, financial advisory, human resources and internet technology.
