There must be hundreds of management
consulting companies in Thailand some good, some indifferent and some
abominable. However they all have on thing in common - the consultancy
fees they charge.
As far as I can see the main
justification for these high fees are the high salaries paid to the
experts. The western management consultants, living on expatriate
salaries, who have demanded premium rates. Things are a changing and
changing rapidly as more and more Thai consultants progress up the
company ranks and branch out to form their own management consulting
I recently worked with
a consultant company. The management Company as their name suggests
concentrates on advising companies and are one of the premier firms
working in management consultancy in Bangkok. A curious scenario
transpired one day when I was asked to help them with their vision
statement to appear in their new company brochure. "We aim to be the
best Thai consultants in Thailand" My first thoughts were that the word
'Thai' should not be included. and maybe limiting themselves to Bangkok
would be a better alternative.
So the motto should read "We aim to be the best consultants
in Bangkok" However it became clearer when they explained to me that
they wanted it be known that they were "Thai" and mot the more common
western consultant, or western managed consultant business. I wish them
luck. There are a lot of consultants and consulting companies in
Thailand. They will need to be the best to survive.
