Well-defined requirements are key
Clarify your organisation's needs and why they emerged.
When you have a clear idea of your needs, it is much easier to communicate to your employees and the supplier of consultants. Put some effort into writing your request to the supplier of consultants to ensure that what you need is well-defined. Although it can seem like a banality, you should put some effort into this step and not treat it lightly.
Use the consulting partner actively in the process of writing your request.
The more the supplier knows about the project, the better they can find the right profile for your organisation. In the request, you should emphasise the description of the project and the context around it.
Specify what skills and area of expertise you want the consultant to have and the project's status and objectives.
The consulting partner is also concerned with making the project attractive to their consultant. A precise, detail-oriented request is the best prerequisite to getting your needed expertise.
