Increase the Impact of Staff Units – Staff Employees

Context

Staff Units offer their expertise to Business Units. Irrespective of culture it is a de facto customer – supplier relationship. Business units do not just need expertise, they often need advice, e.g. in HR, in Marketing, or when contracting. Whenever they do not get the consulting they need internally they turn to external consultants. Sometimes it would be wiser to teach internal experts consulting vs. investing time and money to teach external consultants “the company”.
