Editorial Reviews

Review

"This book provides individuals who work with organization change a rare gift by providing a glimpse into the mind and thinking of internal organization consultants. Experienced and beginning consultants will find the insights and information interesting and useful." -- John D. Carter Ph.D., President, Organization & Systems Development Center, Gestalt Institute of Cleveland

This is a refreshing book to read because it provides real life scenarios regarding issues and dilemmas faced by internal organization development professionals in a very straightforward and open manner. The combination of personal anecdotes from former internal consultants with fundamental organization development theory provides internal consultants "at all levels" a solid resource for practicing their work. -- Mary Choi, Vice President Organization Development, The Patent & License Exchange, Inc.

What an extraordinary resource! Bev Scott has articulated the "inside baseball" of consulting. I only wish I had been fortunate enough to have such a wise and inspiring mentor early in my career. This book is not only an invaluable resource for those new to the internal consulting role, but provides guidance, support, and insight to all of us who do our work at the margins. Buy it, read it, and give it to everyone you know in the field. -- B. Kim Barnes, C.E.O.. Barnes & Conti Associates, Inc.

Format: Paperback
This is a great hands-on practical guide from consultants who have "been there, done that" a thousand times. The chapters are well-organized and full of the kind of wisdom we need more of in government as well as private business. As a former state mental health commissioner and current CEO of a governmental non-profit managed care organization, I recommend Consulting on the Inside with great enthusiasm. Bob Nikkel, MSW, Executive Director, Jefferson Behavioral Health, Oregon

I have been doing this type of work for 4 years now...Kim, your consulting on the inside book has become a real page turner...so much of what I have read so far is like déjà vu for my first two months in a new role consulting/coaching leaders for an 8 billion dollar project...thank you and Beverly as well for sharing ... I now have a holistic playbook that is pragmatic and keeps me focus and helps me keep others focused on this things that create value ... It never hurts to review your assignment from the perspective of the various stakeholders we work with every day...nice work writing down your experiences...Paul
