Advisors have played an important role throughout the evolution of civilization. Perhaps the most eminent ‘advisor’ one could think of, would be Kautilya, the advisor to Chandragupta. It was perhaps Kautilya’s ChanakyaNiti that helped Chadragupta to ascend the throne and maintain the expansive empire of India. Thus we put forth this question, do we need Chanakya like advisors in today’s business world?
Well the answer lies in more than just a yes or no. advisory services have always maintained a dignified position in the business scenarios and would only continue to build their importance. A company cannot be a self sufficient entity, just like other beings, for its existence. Growth and sustainability are symbiotic processes and we need interaction in order to flourish. Here comes the role of advisory firms and their significance. Armed with expert knowledge in their respective fields, Advisors do monetise their expertise. They could advise on matters regarding finance, business, assets, M&A and the likes.
Consider a situation where an organisation is planning to make a strategic merger with its competitor. The Board members do pass a resolution and are well equipped with knowledge. However, external advisors who aide with M&A activities have built a career out of carrying out mergers and acquisitions. They would be bringing in insights that would not have been considered previously. It is this opinion that would aid organisations regarding the pros and cons and provide prudency in their actions. Successful advisors do bring out relevant, neutral opinions that would be free from and bias or prejudice.
