DATES: (5 days EVENING): from 02nd to 06th October 2023

Venue: University of Rwanda, Gikondo Campus

  1. Introduction

Consultancy is an activity that consists of diagnosing problems and solving them. This way, consulting services can be offered either by a professional expert in the area in which the consultancy needs to be performed or by a consulting firm. Today’s organizations are tasked with creating better products and services, creating them more quickly, and doing so with fewer resources. These new pressures make consulting skills a must-have for modern business. A consultative approach offers a practical route to faster organizational buy-in, improved client relationships and better customer service.

Like any other business, consultancy practices need to be managed and business performance depends on the quality of management.
