‘A well-timed contribution to the body of knowledge on Management Consulting. The book includes contributions from both consultants and academics from around the world, showcasing challenges faced by management consultants and, importantly, how they help companies address them by deploying theory-driven yet practical insights and solutions that make a difference. It's a very solution-driven text that sheds important light on the value consulting that adds to the process of management. It will be of interest to anyone wanting to find out more about the role of the consulting profession, as well as what it is like to work in.’

— Professor Ian Clarke, Dean of the Business School and Chair in Strategy at the University of Edinburgh.

 

‘A refreshing blend of rigorous academic engagement and global relevance through case studies is brought together to produce an interesting, intellectually stimulating and readable book. It is both thought provoking and grounded in the reality of disparate challenges facing management consultants which provides readers with a rich tapestry of ideas and theories that will be of benefit to anyone considering consultancy as a career or wishing to know more about it.’

— Professor Martin Broad, Head of Southampton Business School, University of Southampton.
