Do Big 4 consultants have deep tech skill(s)?

I thought you all might enjoy reading this piece by Keith Townsend: Do Big 4 consultants have deep tech skill?


"In the end, the value of hiring a Big 4 management consultant is that you get a broad range of knowledge and the capability to answer tough business questions. A good adviser will help you ask the right questions and guide you to partners that can help create and implement detailed execution. I would not hire a Big 4 to deliver the technical portion of a project. I’d wouldn’t hesitate to engage them to help provide some rigor and oversight but not manage the actual execution."
It's always fun to hear what an ex-Big 4 consultant thinks of his old life. It's also fun to see him dance around what he really wants to say.

So are you saying I'll help you "ask the right questions" or "answer tough business questions?" I imagine it's going to be one of those two.

And as for hiring me to implement, I'm sorry, but I'm a consultant. We don't actually do what we propose.

A good consultant will help you take your project in right direction by asking question.
Therefore one needs to hire an experienced consultant for their organization, if they don't want to regret later.

Write more, please, for the benefit of consultants wanting some consulting love from a fellow road warrior who can eloquently elucidate what we think but do not communicate.

A consultant has to wear quite a few hats and some of them involve asking questions while other require answering them - a fun read!
