Finding the right consultant for your organization’s project can take time, a luxury that some managers may not have. But TechSoup recommends investing the time: "You are going to be investing significant time and money in this; it’s best to shop around and interview several candidates." So, where to begin? The Web site offers several matters for consideration by managers at nonprofits (TechSoup’s target audience) and for-profits alike. Among them: "Does the consultant’s technical experience match your needs?" "How busy is the consultant?" "Can the project be completed remotely?"
