A business consultant first of all to has the ability to understand function over form and cause over effect because the consultant is going to either be brought in for a specific or a macro problem. A specific problem can be “My website's not getting any traffic” The macro problem can be “Were not getting enough sales” or “We are getting beat in the market” And you've got to be able to be causation-focused. You have to first look at the effect, but then determine what is really causing it. And then you have got to be able to deal not with form “Oh, you just need better marketing” but you have got to be able to understand function.
