One of the strengths of the consultancy industry is that it is project oriented, able to manage the growth and decay of project teams and the processing and dissemination of the large volume of information generated by all the participants. The paper describes the ways in which a project is distinct from an ongoing enterprise, the tasks of the project manager and the strains that a major project places on the resources within the owner's organisation. The paper identifies a number of parties to a project, both those directly and indirectly involved, and relates the capability of consultants to meet present-day circumstances.
