Jasmin Mesic, Student (University), Netherlands
I am currently researching the development of a model which maps the process of becoming an authority in some chosen field of expertise (focused on business management). The model is focused on business/management consultants who wish to further develop their skills with the final goal of becoming a recognized authority in their field.

Consultant? Specialize!

Hi Jasmin,
I don't mean to be glib. I've been a management consultant for nearly 30 years. From productivity to business transformation, as a program manager. The only road map or model is to find your niche and be the best at it. Specialize. Whether it be OCM or Process Improvement. Be that expert and always look to sharpen your saw.
As my Uncle once said, who is a financially successful professional, find what you like to do and be the best at it. I find that having so much in my bag of tricks and so many varied successful projects will only serve to confuse the client and worse could eventually confuse one's purpose.
Be able to answer the question of who you are and what you do. Best of luck to you Jasmin.
