Inhoud
The advisory discipline is an established industry and employs hundreds of thousands of people. Advisory is best described as “creating value for organizations, through the application of knowledge, techniques and assets, to improve business performance. This is achieved by through the rendering of objective advice and/or the implementation of business solutions” (Markham & O’Mahoney, 2013). Giving advice is not limited to a particular industry and can be found in any industry and on many different topics such as taxes, business strategy, marketing, ICT etc. Logically, the focus of this course is on giving ICT advice but to a variety of industries.
In this course we address ICT advisory from four different perspectives: Descriptive, Practitioner, Critical, and Career perspective. These will be addressed in the lectures of the course and are based on the book that is prescribed for this course. Besides the theory you will be practicing your consultancy skills in the skills workshops. Skills include for example presenting, analyzing and writing. Each of the workshops will be provided by a different consultancy company that is based in the Netherlands and concerns a mix of small, medium and large consultancy organizations. Finally you will practice skills and theory in a project where you have to advise a real client. In this project you will work in teams of three students, where the client that you will be working for is provided by one of the consultancy companies. During the project you will produce a number of intermediate deliverables and the end deliverables are an advisory report and a presentation. The deliverables will be graded and determine your grade for the course.
Several consultancy companies will be participating in this course by providing guest lectures, skills workshops and projects at their clients. At the same time you also learn more about the different types of consultancies as we have a nice mix of small, medium and large consultancy companies that participate.
During the course you will be undertaking a consultancy project at a client (i.e. a company or governmental institution). The consultancy companies that participate in this course will provide a number of projects at their clients. But we probably need more project so also lookout actively for clients yourself.
Later in the course you might be asked to sign a Non-Disclosure Agreement (NDA) in which you declare that you will handle in the best interest of the client and will not disclose any information you get from the client.
