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.
