A “strategy consultant” is a consultant, in particular a business consultant, management consultant or political consultant, who offers the consulting services of strategy consulting.

A “strategy consultant” is a “strategist” in the professional sense, who offers his in-depth expertise in the formulation of “strategies” within the scope of an advisory activity to decision-makers.

A “strategy consultant” is a natural or legal person who, on the basis of relevant expertise, provides advice as a professional service to decision-makers in companies, organisations, institutions and communities, in the sense of an explanation of facts based on knowledge and analysis in conjunction with an assessment of alternative courses of action which leads to a recommendation for the design of a strategy.

Ideally, the competence profile of a strategy consultant combines specialist expertise in the subject area with functional-methodical knowledge of analysis and strategy development.
