Baaij, Frans A. J. Van den Bosch and Henk W. Volberda ABSTRACT The “resources, dynamic capabilities and competences perspective” (Sanchez, 2001) has challenged firms to apply these concepts to improve their competitive position. Management consulting firms may assist clients in these efforts. However, the roles that management consulting firms fulfill in these processes can differ considerably and are under-researched. Therefore, insight in these different roles and the impact of these roles on clients’ competitive positioning in their industries is required.

Clients using management consulting firms to assist with competence building face the risk of leakage of competitive knowledge to competitors. As a result they may loose their competitive advantage as competitive convergence takes place. Consulting firms have built fire walls to prevent competitive leakage. However, the risk of loosing competitive knowledge to competitors through consultants has been acknowledged as a real threat by top managers in large Swedish organizations (Engwall & Eriksson, 1999).
