Customer Review

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic Textbook, 20 Aug. 2011
This review is from: Flawless Consulting: A Guide to Getting Your Expertise Used (Hardcover)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I recently started a new job which involves a degree of consultancy work in a role that hasn't existed before in a semi start up environment. A bit of a blank slate situation. I thought this book might give me some ideas. I did a bit of research as well and discovered that this is apparently the academic standard text book on consultancy. So I ploughed on. I think this is an excellent point by point how to manual. It introduces the subject very well and gives you step by step processes and analytical tools to follow when engaging in consultancy. It is also good in pointing out that pretty much any environment and situation involves a degree of consulting as in getting your views across, having them accepted and acted on whilst remaining aware that any action is going to be carried out in a co-operative manner and in a situation where you have influence but not executive power. I found the books step by step, point by point approach to be highly effective and each page gave me cause to pause and consider what aspect of my work that would relate to, how to follow the processes outlined and what to come up with for that stage and how to implement the ideas and formulas the book outlines. It really is a bit like a technical manual on for example how to dismantle an engine and put it back together. It enabled me to examine my roles and tasks in a far more methodical manner and work out the exact processes I needed to implement and what pit falls to avoid and how to accomplish my objectives in a friendly, co-operative, objective manner. I give the book a big thumbs up and would recommend it as a first rate How To technical manual on dealing with your role in the work place, not simply a consultancy book. Highly recommended.
