Hmmm this is a loaded question I say any penny you pay a consultant is too much! J/K

Actually I have seen consultants charge from 600/per man day to 30K for the year to help them implement a system. I guess what it boils down to, get what you can from where you can. If you know a company with deep pockets can afford to pay more than charge them more (I know that sounds unethical, but who said consultants had any ethics. Once again JUST KIDDING!) and on the flip side cut the smaller companies some slack. I think Hfowler was pretty much right on most charge 800-1600 per man day plus expenses.

I've noticed a drop in consultancy fee's.
I recently offered a service to a client who baulked at my $500. CDN for a full day system assessment and report. A full day being defined as between 6 and 10 hours.
Three years ago I was having no problem attaining $500. for a full day system assessment.
How times are a changing.

Consulting fees

Business has slowed down from the last year.

Consultants for ISO 9001:2000 usually charge between $60-$120/hr.

My rates are very close to my competition, but they usually quote double the number of hours for a project.

I have picked up 3 contracts since the beginning of the year. My clients are not arguing over the rates but on total cost.

Since I have been Consultant too, I want to add my 2 (Euro)Cents:

The economy is depressed during the last year, so most companies have to save costs. Many of them have a hire freeze or even a zero expense directive. So it is hard to bring off new contracts. And this lowers the rates.

I think all consultants have the same problem and the Big Five are more in trouble because they have to fund the organizational overhead...

Question Curious

What about training business? My observation here is that even though consulting business is in low gear, there is a good market / money for focused training programs on topics such as FMEA, SPC, GD&T, MSA etc.

Also, do we have any Six Sigma Consultants on board? What's the scene like in 6S Consulting?
