Contributor(s): Stephen J. Bigelow

A consultant is an experienced individual that is trained to analyze and advise a client in order to help the client make the best possible choices. A strategic consultant may evaluate a business plan and help the client develop a plan to meet those strategic goals. For example, a client concerned with government regulations and risk mitigation may engage an ediscovery or regulatory compliance consultant. As another example, value added resellers (VARs) may employ sales consultants to examine the client's immediate business or technology needs and recommend products, services, or other solutions that can address those needs.
