Consulting is a big, one-size-fits-all term that includes virtually any form of advice-giving. Many people think first of management consulting, also called strategy consulting, which specializes in providing advice about strategic and core operational issues – but there are many other types of consulting, including marketing consulting, technology consulting, human resources consulting, just to name a few.
