To understand the importance of a project management consultant we have to explain the project life cycle and clarify some aspects related to any project, starting from the definition of project which is a series of tasks to achieve a specific outcome within a specific timeframe and budget where a project manager is the one who is responsible to assure with other associates the initiating, planning, executing, monitoring and controlling and the closure of a project. (Project Life Cycle)
A project is not a routine operation but it is a specific set of operations designed to accomplish a singular goal as a project team often include members who do not usually work together and sometimes from different organizations, a project manager is in charge to manage and organize the project team into the defined timeframe and within the defined scope and resources.
An experienced project manager may master some skills that support the managed project and yield remarkable result, skills like organizing the chaos of project, encouraging teamwork, maximizing resources, controlling costs, managing change, and controlling quality. Each of the mentioned skills is important for overall project quality.
In order to understand who a consultant is, it easy to be explained from the performed role which is advice and support. A consultancy is a professional person or a business that provides expert advice to others. In projects, a company may appoint a project management consultancy if it lacks a project management expertise or want a project management advice from a third party.
Project management consultants bring specialized skills and knowledge to assist companies in making the best possible business decisions. They typically provide oversight and leadership in executing projects from planning to completion. Daily tasks can include managing budgets, resources, maintaining relationships to achieve organizational objectives, as well as planning, developing, and executing schedules to ensure timely completion of projects.
One of the main focuses for consultants is quality control and assurance which include examining the quality of works like workmanship, finishing, materials bought, prepared as well as fabricated according to standards.
So, to sum up the answer of the big question based on the above details, if project owners want to ensure the success of their project, they have to hire a professional project management consultant to monitor the whole project cycle and make sure that the process is following the pre-determined standards within the project timeframe which minimizes the risk of extension of time and avoid claims as possible which will lead to the best outcome and project success.
