Fleit, Linda; Hawkins, Brian
EDUCAUSE Quarterly, v27 n3 p40-45 2004
Presidents are often faced with the challenge of deciding whether to engage an information technology (IT) consultant. A consultant can potentially help a campus executive to sort things through, analyze the situation, and develop plans for action. Although in some cases it may be obvious that a consultant would be helpful, there are times when it is not so clear cut, and these may be the very times when a consultant would be most effective. This article discusses the benefits of hiring a consultant and how to find the right consultant. The authors present some of the things that the president hiring a consultant can do to maximize the positive benefits for the consulting experience. (Contains 1 endnote.)
