4.0 out of 5 stars A book all consultants or aspiring consultants should read, 3 April 2001
This review is from: Getting Started in Consulting (Paperback)
I obtained this book from my local library and made a few notes as I was reading through it. This worked well until I reached the chapter "Closing the Sale" which incorporates the "Nine Steps of Great Proposals"; I then realised that I would want to refer back to this time and time again so I logged straight on to Amazon to order my own copy.
The title understates the usefulness of this book by including "Getting started in." ALL consultants of whatever level of experience are certain to find something in this book which digs them in the ribs and says "you really aren't getting the most out of your work, are you ?"
Very few of us aspire to the levels of success that Alan Weiss achieves but he gave me the confidence to believe that I can achieve considerably more than before I took the book off the shelf.
My only caveat is that there are some elements in which the U.S. origin reduces the value because the organisations listed are US-based, however a little research should identify UK equivalents for many of them.
