Make the right decision on the issue of consultant vs. full-time employee This book is based on the authors' previous work entitled Managing the Consultant: A Corporate Guide. Incorporating more than fifty percent new material, this book emphasizes the management aspects of the consultant. The updated version includes new material on the following subjects: what are Internet consultants; where does contracting out differ from consulting; where is it the same; can consultants be "temps"; evaluating consultants; billing and payment arrangements; controlling costs and fees; contacts with competitors; antitrust and trade regulations; using the contract to guide retention; and noncompete clause. This is a hot topic as the market has grown significantly due to downsizing and reengineering - and companies today would rather hire specialists on a job-by-job basis as opposed to full-time to avoid paying long-term benefits. John J. McGonagle Jr., JD (Blandon, PA), is a management consultant and the author or coauthor of eleven business books. Carolyn M. Vella (Blandon, PA) is the founder of The Helicon Group and its current divisions.
