Consulting Firms

Consulting Is More Than Giving Advice!

Consulting can be defined as the practice of providing a third party with expertise on a matter in exchange for a fee. The service includes either advisory or implementation services. For the consultant, taking an independent and unbiased stance on a problem is central to his/her role. A consultant can, in principle, service any sector. Over the past few decades, however, the term has become synonymous with business advisory – which focuses mostly on business strategy, management, organization, operational processes and technology.

One key feature of the industry is the so-called ‘knowledge advantage’ that consultancy firms hold in relation to their clients. Consultancy firms are hired to assist their clients with a dilemma, for which specialist expertise or knowledge is required which is otherwise lacking on the clients’ end. Another feature is that consultancy firms form an independent party, which may give the clients an objective perspective on the problems that their organisation struggles with, and can offer them solutions toward the problem. Involving a consultancy firm can also, in some cases, be more cost effective than if an organization were to hire experts themselves. Furthermore, an organization often simply does not have sufficient capacity to manage its change portfolio, which can be done by hiring an external consultancy firm instead.

Singapore is a popular international business hub due to low corporate tax rates and its location as a gateway to Southeast Asia. Many well-known global firms have set up offices in Singapore, making it a magnet for some of the world’s best business consultants. The many consultants that Singapore is home to supply a spread of services to both companies and public sector organizations, helping them improve profitability and transform their operations for the better.

Professionals working within the consultancy industry are generally called ‘consultant’ or ‘advisor’. Often, specific titles are used referring to their knowledge of a certain advisory area or their respective sector of expertise (e.g. strategy consultant, healthcare consultant, procurement consultant, etc.) Consultants in Singapore can do just about anything a company needs to improve their business, navigate challenges, and position themselves well in a competitive market.

The consultants active within the industry are highly educated professionals. They have gained their experience in a particular field, or within a specific sector, after years of studying, training as well as by building work experience. From within their organisation, consultants are deemed to work with a professional demeanour, holding the right qualifications and capable of providing a high standard of service to clients

  • Providing information to a client.
  • Solving a client’s problems.
  • Making a diagnosis, which may necessitate redefinition of the problem.
  • Making recommendations based on the diagnosis.
  • Assisting with implementation of recommended solutions.
  • Building a consensus and commitment around corrective action.
  • Facilitating client learning—that is, teaching clients how to resolve similar problems in the future.
  • Permanently improving organizational effectiveness.

The lower-numbered purposes are better understood and practiced and are more requested by clients especially in Singapore. Many consultants, however, aspire to a better stage on the pyramid than most of their engagements achieve.

Law Firms

A robust legal industry serves as both an enabler for other sectors of the economy and a self-sustaining economic engine. Singapore’s legal industry is vital to the country’s economy. In 2017, the legal industry in Singapore generated $2.1 billion in nominal value added (VA), accounting for around 0.5 percent of Singapore’s Gross Domestic Product (GDP). Legal services worth $0.9 billion were exported from Singapore during the same time period.


With the government investing a significant budget to infrastructure and greater areas of housing, there is a significant opportunity for those interested in entering the Singaporean design market for commercial structures and recreational places. Because architecture is so intertwined with the construction industry, its economic impact is dependent on the growth of the industry as a whole.

Advisory Firms

Advisory works similar like an audit, in which you will be providing reports and evaluations to upper and middle managers. These reports can vary from financial and accounting advice to a huge range of transactions and events. Although it is often almost like consulting in which you are offering recommendations to consumers through reports and research, you are not actively working on strategy projects.
