Viability of Management Consultancy for Businesses in North East England

 
#1 Viability of Management Consultancy for Businesses in North East England

Llewes

Hello All,

Recently joined this forum hoping to learn more about management consultancy and hopefully gain some answers to some questions I have.

I'm a final year university student on a Business and Management degree course and the assessment for a consultancy module requires me to write a report on the viability of consultancy for North East companies with particular consideration of the effects of the recent financial crisis on the region. To support me with this I am undertaking research to obtain the insight of professionals in the sector. If anyone could give me some thoughts on the below questions it would be greatly appreciated.

What forms of management consultancy services were provided to companies in the region before the economic crisis?

What was the annual/quarterly revenue generated by management consultancy services before the crisis?

How did the economic crisis affect the provision of consultancy services? If indeed it did.

What forms of management consultancy services are provided to companies in the UK/Region following the economic crisis?

What would you estimate the current annual/quarterly revenue generated by management consultancy services in your area?

Many Thanks!!

Hi Llewes,

I'm not in a position to answer your questions but I'd just like to pick up on a couple of quick points...

If you're doing this report for university, you'll need reference where you get your information - I'm not sure an anonymous poster on Top-Consultant.com can be deemed a credible source!

Of course some people on here will be able to give their input but you'll still have to gather research from the appropriate places afterwards, no? Surely you can't base a report on Joe Blogs from an internet forum.

It just doesn't seem like you're spending your time effectively (I'd be researching)! Forgive me if I'm making wild assumptions though - it just comes across like this forum is the only work you've done!

Maybe a brief interview with an MC and/or a business who used consultancy firm pre/post economic crisis would be a valuable addition to your report though? In which case I'm sure there's an MC here that can help you out!

Either way,

Good luck

Is there even an economy in the north east of England? I guess there's Newcastle.

I suppose if you were looking to sell consultancy up there it would need to be to the public sector. The public sector is used to keep the unemployment figures down outside of the south-east. Are there any big public sector agencies up in Newcastle? Maybe HMRC or the Benefits departments have big offices up there?

Hello :)

Thanks for your post.

I do understand the importance of referencing academic sources and perhaps I have been quick to call any potential feedback a "credible" source. I meant that I hope it would give some live insight in to my questions to support other sources. The reason I signed up to this site was due to lack of progress made with contacting consultancy firms- I thought this forum would facilitate an open discussion to complement the work I've already done.

Appreciate the kind words!

That's an interesting point regarding the public sector. You're correct about HMRC.

Thanks
