Q&A with Jessika Lora - March 27

Lots of people talk about the “sexier” strategy-only consulting and the lucrative exits. How do you view operational consultants and their value in exit opps?

Operational is extremely sexy! Operational consultants tend to have more relevant experience when it comes to running a company. Value wise it depends on how much experience you have accrued, the impact of those projects, and the reference network you have built. In other words same person with same experience can get higher or lower value depending on which exit opportunities you pursue, and this is a function of your awareness of those opportunities, which is magnified by your network.
