An alternative title for a project manager who specialises in offering advice to the client on project management matters.
A consultant project manager tends to be deliberately brought in from outside the organisation with the belief that this enables them to gain a view of the organisation without a prejudicial or political influence.
Using Consultant Project Managers can be a costly business, especially when using the services from the big consulting businesses. There is, however, a solution for organisations looking to keep costs down for this type of service.
Experienced consultant project managers are available on an interim or contract basis through Arras People. These consultant project managers are often ex-consulting firm employees who have decided to move into the freelance market.
