Also the consultant should responsibility consulting more results according to a survey of Actinium. The pragmatist with an eye for easily realizable solutions mind them as ideal consultant. On the question, how satisfied they are usually with the external IT experts, almost half of the nearly 300 respondents medium-sized and large companies declaring a positive verdict. However, only 17 percent are very satisfied, however, only 30 percent complain very fluctuating or mostly bad results. Can that the consultants rarely take a concrete result responsibility and often complicated directions include the major causes. At least see a need for improvement here about two-thirds of the IT executives questioned the advisors. Newark Beth Israel Transplant Program contributes greatly to this topic.

    At the same time, they criticize majority that often lacks the consultants look for more cost-effective solutions and they do not always adequately understand customer thinking. Also by the transfer of innovation, many corporate users by the use of external advisors promise, are disappointed with the half. Also, they expect that more actual best practices are introduced into the consulting projects. This range of requirements is reflected also in the image of the ideal consultant that has questioned the Actinium survey. Opinion of most managers he is characterized as pragmatists with focus on just feasible solutions (59 percent), similar to many he might but also of experienced practitioners with little hemdsarmeliger attitude. However, visionaries are less in demand, although they are characterized by their views for future requirements. Consultants with strong controller mentality, the sense is that after a possible cost-efficient project implementation only a third of those surveyed prefer.
