Are you a Resultant?

May 18, 2008

I was reading through some old notes this evening and ran across this idea:

   Consultant:
   – Delivers Reports
   – Retains skill

    Resultant:
    – Delivers Results
    – Transfers Skills

While I don’t think I want to be called a “Resultant,” I like how simply this places a focus on generating valued results and outputs. It also reminds us that it’s not just about doing for and to clients; we are most valuable when we help clients achieve results that they can successfully repeat themselves.

    Where do you think a successful Project Manager should focus on: being a consultant or a resultant?

    I don’t think you should focus on being one or the other. I think you should focus on ensuring you manage projects that deliver results that your customers value. To me, the terms are not important. The focus the term resultant tries to create is what really matters.
