Business Consulting is a wide field. My experiences in this area are formed mainly by my economic studies in my professional education and the application of this knowledge's in the practical work. Each new project needs in the opening phase a well based economic evaluation to be approved and can count with the required financing. Additionally the project needs a presentation and a well prepared documentation - all these are task usually prepared by consulting.
In each project I prefer to get in a initial phase a overview about the complex process in which is embedded the working area of a project, getting so a idea about the interfaces of the working area with the surrounding environment. This additional step is recommendable to find also internal reserves and to see alternative possibilities. There is the external status of the analyzing personal an additional advantage which can be helpful to find "historic" reserves and structures. Especially in cases where the target is an new IT-solution this previous analysis is recommendable, to optimize the process before the modeling of the process is starting. This is the same philosophy which is using international software enterprises like SAP and PeopleSoft, where the consulting costs in the implementation phase usually are higher as the license costs of the software.

But we recommend that the analysis is executed by an outsider, giving that an outsider doesn't take care on historical developments and structures.
Concerning the experiences by sector there are mentionable the followings:
