When bringing a consultant into your business, you expect them to bring value in a specific area of specialization. While you don’t want a consultant who claims to be an expert in everything, the value of a consultant who offers several areas of complementary expertise is often underestimated.

You have to compare the pros and cons of a technology consultant against taking on the project in-house, which can lead you down the road of needing to further discuss who will take the lead on the project, the budget, timeline, scope of work, and so much more.
