Virtual Consultants

What is virtual consultancy?

The traditional consultancy model of large teams on site for weeks at a time is out of sync with today’s culture. Clients want access to the very best people, on their terms.

Scopism offers consultancy as a service (CaaS). Our clients get the advice and support they need, when they need it, from enthusiastic and committed professionals – delivered virtually.

CaaS engagements can be used to provide support and mentoring, for specific projects, for people who are new in their role, and for anyone involved in a digital transformation program. If a project is going off course, our consultants can get you back on track, fast.

Working with a virtual consultant is simple

You start with a kick-off meeting, where you get to know each other. You will agree what you want to achieve and a draft timetable for your meetings. After the meeting, your consultant will confirm the objectives in writing and set up your diary appointments. You can use virtual consultancy time for meetings, or to ask your consultant to review documents and plans. Your timetable is flexible, subject to your and your consultant’s availability.

The future of consultancy is virtual

Have you ever…
  • Completed a training course and then wondered where to start?
  • Wished you could have just a short conversation with someone who’s done it all before?
  • Felt like your company could be doing things better, but not know how?
  • Wanted some ongoing support during a long term project, but not on a full time basis?
Imagine having the best consultants in the industry at your fingertips. Choose who you work with, for how long, and how often. Virtual consultants give you flexible help when you need it most.

Consultancy packages

Typical packages include:
  • Building an improvement plan - define measurable steps to meet your long term goals
  • Change enabler - support during an organizational change such as a restructure, digital transformation or insourcing/outsourcing
  • 60 minute support - to answer that urgent question, or to help you get to know our consultants
  • Emergency assistance - who do you call when something goes wrong?
  • Industry expert - work with the best of the best in fields like organizational change and agile management
  • Mentoring - regular support if you’re new in post or working in a new way
