Consulting firms - high expectations from customers
Organizations have various way to put the right resources behind the work they need to get done. Sometimes they want an in-house, full-time employee, while other times they will consider outsourcing the job to a trusted partner or consulting firm. Today's connected society has seen a dramatic shift towards outsourcing and bringing in short term temporary resources, a phenomenon known as the Gig Economy. When organizations turn to a trusted consulting partner, they consider the partner's expertise across their various business functions and technologies, in addition to their general working relationship. They likely expect great results of the consulting partner because of its track record and successful execution of past projects. Because security and privacy weave into all pieces of business, both technical and non-technical, the organization may also assume that the partner can fulfill niche projects for these areas without really knowing the limits of the partner's expertise.
