The challenges addressed in this essay require consultants to be adaptable, proactive and innovative. Consultants must always be up to date with new market trends and needs of the customer. For example, currently one of the consulting areas that have been most sought after by companies is related to Sustainability and Climate Change, a subject that was not even considered in the range of consultancy services 50 years ago.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
