Whether you need a high-level review of your strategy and competition, new ideas for marketing, or tactical advice on information technology, finances, or personnel, we can help. Our consultants have the training to grasp complex business issues – and the experience to know which ones really matter.

Why not let an informed, independent partner help clarify your company’s most critical issues and objectives?

What could a consultant do for you?

There are seven things our consultants like to
focus on at Craft Beverage Consultants

  • Provide information
  • Solve problems / issues / challenges
  • Diagnose, and redefine problems / issues / challenges & opportunities
  • Recommend
  • Implement
  • Build consensus and commitment around corrective action
  • Facilitate client learning
  • Permanently improve organizational effectiveness

And the last three, are the mark of the ‘better’ and more effective consultant.

Why does an organization engage a consultant?

These are the 12 most common needs for consulting help:

  • Temporary assistance
  • Objective review
  • Third-party request for problem / opportunity identification & resolution / realization
  • Surviving a crisis
  • Initiating change
  • Obtaining funding
  • Selecting key personnel
  • In-house education
  • Conflict resolution
  • Executive assistance
  • Government regulatory assistance
  • Socio-economic and political change

These needs can be broken down into six parts:

  • We must have specific skills
  • We require knowledge
  • We demand experience
  • We will set a timeframe
  • It’s necessary for the consultant to have frequently addressed our needs
  • Objectivity is a necessity

What’s the role of the consultant?

Having defined a need for consulting help, we then consider the consultant’s role in addressing these needs, and there are six:

Coach

Expert

Facilitator

Mentor

Trainer

Temporary Representation

In practice, the consultant’s project role is typically a combination of #2 (the Expert in the room) plus one of the others.
