In an international comparison, research on evaluation and the effectiveness of consultancy is still in its infancy in Germany. However, knowledge in these subjects is highly valuable for the improvement of consultancy in education, professional life and employment. Education, labour market and consultancy researchers have contributed to this anthology with research approaches and results and discuss how this data can be used to strengthen the evidence base for long-term consultancy.
