Format: Hardcover
Quite simply appalling. I'm thinking of moving into a consulting firm after time in accountancy and recruiting and thought that this would be insightful. Far from it. It's 200+ pages of padded out waffle and light on true insight. Probably only 3 recommendations in the book that I thought were worth remembering.

1) The problem the client has asked you to answer is not always the problem that needs addressing.
2) Ensure buy-in from the key client decision makers throughout the project and not at the end
3) In interviews try to test a hypothesis rather than simply gather data.

Afraid I can't recommend other books that are better but this book is laughable.

Good actionable methods to follow and a good insight into the consulting mindset and methodology.
However, seemed to offer very low level advice (do a ton of research and interviews) to produce recommendations in a structured format. I feel sure there must be more to consulting than that?

Worth a read for leaving me with questions.

Format: Hardcover
I recommend this book for anyone aiming a career with McKinsey, BCG, Bain and etc. It gives a great insight into a consultant's mind. I regret not reading before taking MBA Strategy classes!
However, if you need a deep-dive into McKinsey lifestyle and some tips'n'tricks of how to work 80+ hours/week while staying happy-you better go for 'McKinsey' mind where you find much more of hands-on help how to perform better and look sharp.

This is an excellent insight into the secret world of McKinsey, one of the most successful companies of business consultants in the world. I was interested because I was coming into contact with one of their consultants and wanted to know what to expect and it did the trick. Very good toolkit too!

Format: Hardcover
Businesses and other organizations usually solve their problems through team efforts. The business consulting firm McKinsey has developed special expertise in team-based problem solving and change management. In this book, former McKinsey associate consultant Paul Friga describes TEAM FOCUS, an acronym he had invented to describe McKinsey's method of problem solving. He integrates this McKinsey-based method with other approaches. getAbstract recommends this hands-on book to executives, managers, team leaders and business consultants who want to improve their business operations and are looking for systematic approaches
to problem solving.
