This product (Selling Consulting Services Effectively) is a 53-slide PowerPoint presentation (PPT), which you can download immediately upon purchase.
This PowerPoint presentation is a training document used by a major management consulting firm for business development. It focuses on 2 methodologies for selling and building client relationships:
ORDER stands for Opportunity, Resources, Decision Process, Exact Solution, and Relationship. What makes the ORDER model unique and valuable for consulting firms is its comprehensive approach.
The ORDER Model integrates opportunity assessment, resource allocation, data-driven decision-making, execution planning, and ongoing performance evaluation. This systematic methodology enhances the consulting firm's ability to help clients adapt to changing market conditions, optimize resource utilization, and achieve sustained growth and competitive advantage. It ensures that strategies are not only well-designed, but also effectively implemented and adapted as circumstances evolve.
The 4S Model (where the 4 Ss are Strategy, Substance, Structure, and Style) is used in conjunction with the ORDER Model for imposing communication requirements. Effective selling requires making important strategic decisions around each of the 4 Ss.
The 4S Model emphasizes the importance of conveying the strategy (Strategy), the depth and quality of the content (Substance), the organizational alignment (Structure), and the appropriate presentation and messaging (Style) for successful business development.
This presentation also provides a selling tool (the message planner template) and use case examples to illustrate the application of the tool.
This is a great reference for selling management consulting services. Global consulting firms often view business development as a holistic process that extends beyond short-term gains, emphasizing long-term client relationships and comprehensive solutions. They also invest research into developing an effective biz dev approach and utilize proven business development frameworks, such as what's explained in this presentation.

"As a small business owner, the resource material available from FlevyPro has proven to be invaluable. The ability to search for material on demand based our project events and client requirements was great for me and proved very beneficial to my clients. Importantly, being able to easily edit and tailor
the material for specific purposes helped us to make presentations, knowledge sharing, and toolkit development, which formed part of the overall program collateral. While FlevyPro contains resource material that any consultancy, project or delivery firm must have, it is an essential part of a small firm or independent consultant's toolbox.
