In one form or another, I’ve spent most of my career doing consulting. Consulting is integral to my role as a systems engineer. In fact, I still kick off my systems engineering course with a lecture on consulting methods.
Consulting is also an important part of my role in marketing and sales as I offer guidance to my customers on the design of systems to best meet their business goals. And, for a number of years, I ran my own consulting company focused on the design and development of graduate engineering programs having a strong emphasis on leadership and professional development.
Consulting has been an inherent part of just about everything I’ve done professionally, and I suspect that may be the case with many of you as well. I’m in the process now of developing a course just on consulting. I don’t know how much interest there will be. Some, I hope.
