Infrastructure consulting is a specialty within the field of construction. It is the practice of investigating the structure of a particular building from the inside out and advising on the best design and material selections for the project.
I think it is the most important part of construction as it gives a company a sense of what the work is all about and gives them an idea of how the building is going to perform. The best way to find these things out is through a good contractor.
Now if you’ve never heard of infrastructure consulting then that’s probably because you haven’t hired a contractor to do it. But if that’s the case then you might as well just call it a day. Because the vast majority of construction companies are incompetent at what they do and they simply don’t do it well. And it’s not even about being a little bit incompetent.
So what’s the problem exactly? Well it doesn’t matter how you define the word “client. A client is a man or woman you show up at the office with some money and a dream. If you’ve got the money to hire people for this kind of work then you probably should do it. But the fact is that it is a lot harder to find a contractor than it is to find a good client.
But I’m sure you dont believe that because youre like most people who wouldnt hire a contractor if they could get a better deal elsewhere. You probably see the problem with that. But you dont see that because youre blinded by your own ego. You look at the world around you and think you know what you need. You assume you know whats best for everyone. Then you hire someone to help you get it.
The problem with this sort of thinking is that it’s a false assumption. You are probably unaware of all of the things you need to do to get your home done right. Sure, a contractor may promise you something and the fact that they are “good” at their job is irrelevant. But the fact that they are “good” is probably more important to them than the fact that you pay them.
It’s not just the fact that they are good at their job, but what sort of work they do—what sort of process they use. And if they are good at their job—even if they have no business experience—they are likely to get the job done right. It’s a little like asking someone who knows what they are doing to be a doctor.
The good news is that it is now possible to hire an “IT Infrastructure consultant” or just “IT Consultant”. It is a type of “professional” that you can search for on-line. And of course if you have the time to get to know someone then you can tell them what they need to know about what they’re doing.
IT Consultants do a wide variety of jobs. The most common ones are network administrators, web servers, software testers, and computer network/ISP support. Of course, most people arent good at many of these jobs. But for small business owners who plan on doing a lot of these jobs and who are not necessarily very creative and who don’t have the time to do the best job they can, it will be a good idea to find a consultant who is good at it.
IT Consultants are a dime a dozen. But one of the best IT Consultants I know, a consultant who specializes in small business consulting and web development, has been in business for over 30 years. He has consulted for all kinds of small businesses, ranging from retail to medical equipment and even small services like dog boarding.
