Why would you need a business consulting analyst and not a business consultant?
This is the question we are asked the most, and we understand why. A business consultant has a large list of skills and wide knowledge about almost every area of a company. After all, he or she needs to provide advice and assist the business according to its needs and goals. However, having so much knowledge makes the professional a generalist, which means the expert can help with everything in the business but not in a deep way. Unless he or she decided to focus the rest of the training and services in an area in specific. But doing this is what usually turns business consultants into analysts instead.
Business consulting analysts are more specialized in an area and this could seem like a limitation for most companies when they are looking for a professional. But it is quite the opposite. Since the analyst has employed all his or her time in learning and obtaining specific skills for an area in business, the knowledge is much deeper and wider compared to the one that a business consultant has. This allows businesses to address the problems and situations in the specific areas much better and with someone that will only focus on not only dealing with the current ones but also make sure nothing similar happens in the future.
So, which one should you employ for your needs? This will depend on what you determine at the end of the day after analyzing the needs of the company. Do you need someone that can support and advise you in different areas? Or, are you trying to find an expert that can handle an entire department alone and provide great results thanks to how focused he or she is in the area? You are the only one that can answer this. But to give you some help in the decision making, we suggest you hire a business consulting analyst when you know the issues or situation in an area is critical and should be handled for someone well trained and experienced on it.
In some cases, business owners decide to assign a current business consultant to the task of dealing with an area only. If you do the same and decide that he or she will handle this alone as the job position, you will have an analyst without noticing sooner than later. After all, the expert will have to focus on the problems and responsibilities of this area only, forcing him or her to acquire all the knowledge and the missing skills.
