Consulting Process and Preparation

The Consulting Process

How should I prepare for consulting?

A good preparation and description of your problem sets a good foundation on your joint work and ensures that we can work efficiently and purposefully on your problem. This includes the following points:

  • Prepare a document to introduce your project and problem
  • Have your data ready (some useful recommendations can be found e.g. here, especially in section 1c, 1d and 1f)
  • What are obstacles for you regarding the analysis?
  • Is there a need to use specific software? Otherwise we would use R
  • Is there a need for using a specific statistical method?
  • At which state is your project? Are there any deadlines?
