The Expert Insight’s (TEI) Perspective on Industry Expert Consultation.


Mumbai, India -- (ReleaseWire) -- 04/28/2021 --What is Expert Network

An expert network is a council of expertise which can be accessed through a carefully curated network. It is a professional network that businesses can avail to access expert knowledge and advice. An expert network puts the phrase knowledge is power in use and provides a platform to leverage that power. As a business grows and operations get more complex, the need for a specialized expert across different functions in the value chain, increases. However, oftentimes, it isn't easily accessible and that's where the expert network comes in. For example, it's imperative that a chemical manufacturing unit trying to expand its operations globally or a PE firm while acquiring an FMCG company, would require premium insights and on-ground information that can seldom be found from secondary sources. The best of such primary insights could only be provided by subject matter experts, custom vetted on the specific criteria. These experts are industry professionals, possessing a profound relevant work experience highly regarded across different functions across the value chain. They could potentially be anyone from being at a Board member, CX or Director level to mid-senior management including Plant Managers, R&D and, Technology Heads to Sales, Business Development and, Operation Heads depending on the specific nature of the requirement. They are the best minds, fit for the requirement, to help individuals make more efficient and well-informed business decisions.

Historically, expert networks were used by PE and Financial Firms to have a better idea and gain inside knowledge about the industry their proposed investment worked in, given the huge amount of money involved in the investment industry, many thought it pays off in the long run, similarly, Management Consultants have increasingly used expert networks and subject matter experts to outsource some functions and gain an insight into their client industry, this allows to them to cut costs and by and large, get acquainted with the client atmosphere and come up with industry specific terms to fix the problem of the client.

Region sourcing is an important criterion that The Expert Insight believe in, clients sometimes require a strong region-specific expert who helps them navigate across different geographies and ensures the strategically correct course of action for the client. Management consultants who have global clients regularly request region-specific experts, this ensures that the expert is aware of the market around the industry and can guide their team better, this trend is similar to the one followed by Private Equity firms who have global investments to make.

Regions are divided by continent and by far the largest market is in North America followed by Europe and Asia, North America has shown a 4.5 % growth in the last 5 years by the size of the Expert Network market and is showing signs of growing further.
