Companies in every industry are using Advisors & Consultants to provide specialized input for their projects rather then hiring new full time employees. This has created a real opportunity for scientists, engineers, technologists and tech managers at all levels to consult (virtually) on exciting projects.
What is the difference between an Advisor & Consultant?
An Advisor is normally a person (independent contractor) with knowledge and experience in a specific area or application. An Advisor provides Clients with specialized advice, methods and strategic ideas. Advisory functions generally can be performed virtually with limited work product. Advisors usually are not directly involved in the execution of plans, but may review results.
For example a Biotechnology Advisor provides biotechnology and pharmaceutical companies with specialized technological advice, opinion and may provide input on future plans. The Advisor has less involvement in the execution of these plans then a consultant.
A Consultant is an individual (independent contractor) who will develop and assist in the implementation of detailed strategic and tactical plans that address specific performance and development issues encountered by a Client.
For example a Management Consultant will help an organization to improve their performance primarily through the detailed analysis of existing organizational, product or technology issues. This information is used to develop detailed plans for improvement. The Consultant may directly assist the company in the execution of these plans.
