Changes in the business landscape are an everyday thing. A minor change in regulation, shift in the industry trends, movements in the macroeconomic indicators of the country, alterations in world-specific guidelines, the emergence of new competitors, and many similar factors alter the working environment of a business. It gets difficult for business owners to respond to these changes while continue focussing on the growth of their business operations to remain competitive and to improve productivity. When it becomes difficult for businesses to develop a strategic solution to deal with the ruthless world out there, business consultants can come to aid.
Many categories of business consulting companies exist in the UAE, which can help you with the myriad challenges that your organization faces. We provide below the checklist to consider while selecting the best business consultants in the UAE:
Criteria to look for the best business consultants in UAE
Wide-ranging knowledge and expertise
Entrepreneurship is a great skill that speaks for itself. It gives the experience that no other job can provide. A business consultant, who has started a business of his/her own, has the required skill to respond to the issues in the business. They are aware of the nuances of running an organization, starting from the initiation of the idea to its growth phase. They will have a broad range of skills in most of the functions of the organization, be it finances, human resources, strategy, procurement, operations, administration, and others. Such an experience would enable them to develop an all-round view of the problem and to go deep into it to understand the origins so that solving it becomes possible.
Worthy business network
The business consultants must have a good network of contacts, including people from all types of businesses and different walks of life. Even the clientele base of the consultant can give a clear picture of their business network. Such a worthy network will prove their capability and expertise in different sectors. The network consisting of only big clients does not prove their competence; however, the right mix of small firms, mid-sized businesses, non-profit organizations, and other types of business types and structures gives a better picture of their know-how.
Exceptional communication and interpersonal skills
teamwork to handle the different tasks allocated to the consultant and client’s teams, patience to handle each other, and the flexibility to try different solutions before agreeing on one can work wonders.
Familiarity with the UAE market
A business consultant in the UAE must have an understanding of the legal formalities, licensing requirements, business regulations, and other policies required to be followed for business operations in the country. They must have contacts in the government departments and associations that will make the legal and regulatory procedures smoother. They must have the awareness of the economic situation, trends and challenges of different industry sectors, global best practices in business, and other local requirements that can suffice to help in addressing the problems of clients.
Contacting and connecting with a single business consultant will not give you the best feasible solution. Organizations must look into various business consultants and compare them in terms of the above-mentioned factors to find the best business consultants in the country.
