What is the role of a management consultant?
If we look at Wikipedia, "management consulting is the practice of helping organizations to improve their performance. Organizations may draw upon the services of management consultants for a number of reasons, including gaining external advice and access to consultants' specialized expertise."
For more people, starting their careers as management consultants is a kick-off of their professional journey. We had the honor to converse with Ceyda Atay Haga, Principal at Kearney in the Oslo Office about what does it mean to be a management consultant, what are some of the challenges of the role, and how can one start their journey in this field.
