Are the top consulting firms the top for you?
What kind of impact do you want to have within your consulting company? 🛳️: You are pragmatic and like having a safety net, working with methods...
The consulting world is denominated like that because it is indeed a world of its own, with its rules, dynamics, and of course, its own vocabulary. Have you ever spoken to a consultant, you will have been convinced for sure that you need to be fluent in their slang.
A conglomerate of collocations, a pile of words, abbreviations and acronyms created for efficiency and time-saving. Even if it might sound intimidating, once one is immersed in this field it becomes the daily tool that allows you to communicate with the different actors in the chain that consulting tends to be.
If you are a consultant, enjoy this little homage to you (or even learn some new terms) and if you are a curious mind that would like to learn more, get ready for these unfamiliar words to turn into part of your glossary.
This word list is just an approach to the everyday specific vocabulary of a consultant and the other members of a consultancy. In case you want to know more we encourage you to do some extra research although the best way of learning them is in context; every time you come across words that might be useful, don’t doubt to expand your range of vocabulary. Another idea is to establish a word of the day for you to increase your vocabulary by one word a day.
Being proficient in this “new language” is a way of working on yourself and your skills. Just as important as learning from past experiences and interactions it is to ready oneself for situations that haven’t arrived yet.
We hope that these are no longer unfamiliar and that you can find an occasion to practice this set of words. If you understand everything and would like to show us, we invite you to visit our job offers page.
