Overview

*provides guidelines to reduce the risk and increase the benefits of consultancy work within the development and humanitarian sectors
* will help to maximize the contribution that this kind of work can make to overcoming poverty and suffering

This practical guide for NGOs and consultants shows how the two groups can work together to achieve the best results. The book focuses on consultancy use within the NGO sector, and features case studies to illustrate the range of ways in which consultancy is used within this sector, showing both the advantages and the pitfalls.

The book presents a dual perspective, enabling consultants to understand better the priorities and constraints within contracting organizations, and vice versa. It will also be useful for those hiring or taking on work as 'internal', rather than external, consultants. While most books on consulting focus on one side of the relationship, whether providing advice to consultants or to contractors, this book looks at both sides, and not only provides advice and ideas to both sides, but presents the point of view of each.
