Why Your Company Should Bring in an Outside Consultant (even if you've got data analysts)

As a seasoned consultant, I often get asked the question: "Why would a large company hire an outside consultant when they've already employed data analysts?" At first glance, it may seem excessive, but trust me, there are several compelling reasons for it. Allow me to share some insights on why companies should consider external expertise.

A Breath of Fresh Air

Internal data analysts are well-versed in their company's data. However, sometimes being too close to the data can make one miss the bigger picture. That's where we, consultants, come in. We're like a fresh pair of eyes that can spot what's missing and come up with innovative solutions that your team might not have considered.

Specialist Skills

Your data analysts are undoubtedly proficient at what they do. But occasionally, you need that extra-special, niche expertise that only an external consultant can provide. Think of us as bringing additional capability and expertise to your data analysis process.


Flexible Resources

Large companies have a lot on their plates, and your data analysts might be feeling the pressure. By bringing in an external consultant, you can scale resources up or down as needed, ensuring your projects get the attention they deserve without overburdening your in-house team.


Sharing Knowledge

One of the best aspects of consultants is that we're not just here to complete a task and leave. We're all about sharing our knowledge with your team, helping them enhance their skills and tackle future challenges with confidence and expertise.


Swift Results

With our specialised know-how and fresh perspective, consultants can often deliver results more quickly than your in-house team. And when time is of the essence, that's a significant advantage.



You might be surprised, but sometimes hiring an external consultant can save you money. By bringing us in on a short-term basis, you bypass long-term costs such as benefits, and professional development required by full-time employees.


Objective Assessment

As external consultants, in some cases, we can offer you an unbiased evaluation of your company's data, processes, and systems, helping you identify areas that might have gone unnoticed. A bit of objectivity can work wonders in driving improvements and ensuring your company is making data-driven decisions.

Having an in-house team of data analysts is crucial for any large company, but there are many situations where bringing in an external consultant can offer significant advantages. By combining the strengths of your internal team with the expertise, fresh ideas, and flexibility that consultants provide, your company can successfully navigate the ever-evolving landscape of today's data-driven business environment.
