This article reviews existing research on consultants in global and national contexts. It refers to a framework that aims to connect the broader literatures on convergence and divergence. This framework introduces a model that differentiates three effects shaping the result of this dichotomy, namely the ‘system effect’, the ‘societal effect’, and the global ‘dominance effect’. The next section explains why this framework is useful in studying consultants in their broader context. This article ends with a summary of the research and identifies open questions in relation to the three dimensions identified within the framework.

Keywords: consultants; global contexts; national contexts; convergence; divergence; system effect; societal effect; global dominance effect
