This Graziadio Business Review video interview features Kurt Motamedi, PhD, professor of strategy and leadership at the Graziadio School of Business & Management at Pepperdine University. Dr. Motamedi is a popular consultant, award winning teacher and recognized researcher. He recently co-authored a very interesting article in Organizational Dynamics entitled, “New consultant roles and processes in a 24/7 world.”

Dr. Motamedi discusses his research related to the future of consulting practices, including a move away from the traditional human resource roles and lengthy analytical reports. He addresses questions including:

  1. What are some of the most game-changing trends that consultants and their firms are facing?
  2. How do you ensure quality and accuracy when there is such a priority on speed?
  3. You describe two new emerging roles in consulting – the “Facilitator Consultant” and the “Transorg Consultant.” How you see these new roles evolving to meet the demands of the fast-paced tempo of organizational life?
  4. What are some of the integral skills or processes you’ve identified that consultants will need to succeed in these new roles?
