Consulting Firms

“I need to improve the efficiency of our internal operations.”

Intellilink is well-versed in the unique nuances and processes of consulting firms, and offers a range of services to redesign resource management, demand management and other business processes and then build or select and implement technology solutions.

To improve efficiency and ensure profitability, consulting firms are challenged to optimize – not just increase – the utilization of their resources. Without real-time knowledge of project opportunities and consultant availability, firms will find it difficult to maintain an efficient operation. Our Business Intelligence for Project Organizations service offering is focused on identifying and obtaining the performance metrics required to effectively manage a consulting firm.

It is often said that people are the most important asset of an organization, but they are truely critical to a consulting firm. Our Talent Management for Success service offering can help improve the management of the consulting workforce. The demand for skilled resources combined with a dynamic workforce creates the need for a recruiting operation to continually deliver quality recruits. Once inside the organization your best consultants will demand career development and skill enhancement opportunities. At the same time, to ensure the quality of your services, poor performers need to be transitioned out.

Technology might be important to improving operations, but we also understand that changing behavior is what counts. Our experienced change management and facilitation skills become critical to the successful roll out of a change initiative into the often fluid and dynamic organization structures typical in many consulting firms. Only by working with some of the world’s leading consulting firms have we learnt how to successfully implement change into this environment.

With solutions from Intellilink, consulting firms can:

  • Access real-time information to effectively balance project demand with resource availability
  • Optimize project control and resource allocation to free up time for client-focused, value-added work
