In fact, since 2016 the number of companies has grown progressively , reaching a +0.5% The percentages, however, do not give true justice to the phenomenon, given that 348,492 new companies were opened in Italy in 2018 alone. At the same time, the world of business consulting also recorded important data: in 2018 the total turnover of the business consulting sector increased by 8.3 % as certified by Confindustria. This means that more consulting has ensured more stability , more programming and better results .
The figure of the consultant is not new in the business world. It was born again at the beginning of the 1900s but since the 80s it has become an irreplaceable pivot in every business success. Jokingly we could say that it can be the guardian angel of the entrepreneur . And we are sure that this definition is not very far from reality. The consultant is the one to whom the manager asks for advice, submits the evaluation of the company business plan, confides concerns of various kinds. All with the aim of obtaining optimal solutions able to improve the situation of the company.
The task of the business consultant is endowed with a broad knowledge of his / her own subject, both economic, organizational,… . He is the one who, thanks to experience and practice, has learned all the difficult ways of the business world. The consultant knows companies, understands the business context and is therefore able to propose quick and incisive solutions to deal with the entrepreneur’s problems.
