Essential for anyone considering a career in consultancy.,
This review is from: Management Consultancy (Paperback)
OK, this is exactly the book I've been waiting for. It is, essentially, a comprehensive introduction to management consultancy, encompassing everything from critical theory to day-to-day practice to how to get a job in the industry.
Although it's principally an academic book, it's still very accessible to those who don't already have a strong background in the area. This is due to the straightforward tone and approach of the author and the book's user-friendly structure - chapters are well-laid out, easy to read and well-constructed, so ideal for a dip-in, dip-out read. The superb index is also a great aid to the dip-in reader, which is great for quick reference.
Why a proper introduction such as this has taken so long to be published, I don't know. But better late than never. Absolutely essential to anyone who is considering a career in consultancy and definitely the most useful thing I've read on the industry. Highly recommended.
