When reading the text, it soon becomes clear that the author is well placed to guide students through the area of management consultancy. David Biggs is writing as an academic, yet his years of experience as a consultant ensure that a bridge is created between literature and practitioner application. This is particularly useful for students and graduates who are keen to understand how theoretical classroom-based learning can be applied in real-life work-based settings.

This application is further increased by the inclusion of `Thought Provoking Points' and `Industry Snapshots'. The former refers to brief statements from the author's experience in consultancy, whilst the latter outlines `case study' type examples of the topic under discussion. The text also includes exercises (e.g. SWOT analysis, competency frameworks, etc) that could be used to fulfil professional development objectives for individuals at various stages of their career. Each chapter also ends with an in-depth case study demonstrating how tools and lessons present within the chapter could be applied.

This variety in the text instils an accessibility that is also reflected in chapter length. Reading each chapter will typically take between 1-2 hours, which feels like an appropriate amount of time to process the information without becoming overloaded. The book's sixteen chapters ensure a comprehensive guide to the industry, and will enable the reader to 'dip in' and find specific areas of information with ease. In summary, the book represents an extremely useful resource that will be relevant to students and graduates who are considering a career in the broad field of consultancy.

Format: Paperback
Having spent the best part of 20 years in the consulting profession, I picked up Dr. Bigg's book as part of an assignment for a part-time Business Psychology MSc I'm doing. He certainly covers the key areas for anyone starting their career in consultancy and provides a structure to the profession that is very useful for experienced consultants. He manages to balance the academic with the practical in a way that is both informative and entertaining, quite an achievement for such a dry subject.
