Distinguishing Characteristics of Successful Scientific Consultants



Successful scientific consultants, as individual entrepreneurs, must achieve and exhibit a workable mix of three sets of characteristics: one related to technical proficiency, another to interpersonal skills, and a third to business practices. Of the three, technical proficiency is undoubtedly most important, but it cannot prosper without the more mundane supporting categories of good interpersonal skills and efficient business practices. To begin an exploration of these categories that contain the ingredients of success, we have chosen gross dissection of each, followed by microscopic examination of their component parts.
