anishdas,

Define the problem to be solved providing as many facts as possible on the Cove and then await the response.

Question to clarify, synthesize or ignore responses as necessary then proceed with your own judgement.

Hello anishdas! You will find out that being a member of learned forums such as The Cove will give you access to information you need without making a hole in your pocket.

Last time I checked, Google is also a valuable tool.

Cheers!

I agree with everyone else, the Cove is a great place for information. There is TONS of information here.

Also, try networking. Join a local ASQ chapter, go to meeting and talk with people. You never know who you'll meet and how could help you down the road. :agree:

Let me speak for those of us who get paid to provide expert information.

In most cases, a consultant worthy of the name (see my thread Consulting – Is it in YOUR Career Future?) delivers much more value than what he is paid. If an organization doesn't have the full consultant fee in cash, a number of them can and will work out time payments or even trade stock or warrants in lieu of cash fees.

BOTTOM LINE:
A workman worthy of work is worthy of pay!
sometimes
A workman worthy of hire is worthy of pay!

Expert information and consulting are different.
There are several expert information channels that can be accessed and assessed for use by the organization or person without $$ expenditure.
Consulting involves doing the work for the organization by own expert information or accessed expert information, processing it for the organization requirements and providing tangible outputs that are beneficial to the organization in time. Consulting business needs resources apart from own expert knowledge, that will be able to service the customer / client with defined deliverables. This is what the industry needs from consultants IMHO .....

That's correct. They ARE different. Sometimes, though, it takes the expert to winnow through all the "expert" information to find that which is really pertinent for a particular situation.

Note the remarks over the years here in the Cove and see if there isn't a DIFFERENCE between
  • those folks who are self-described "experts" who say, "It worked for me." without really tying the personal experience to the Cove poster's situation and
  • those folks who write "There are other factors to be considered. Could we have more details, please?"
In one case, a solution which worked one time is thrown out as a panacea for all [or most] situations, while, in the other, the writer is attempting to drill down to the specific situation (similar to what a real consultant does on an assignment.)
