Editorial Reviews

Review

"This book provides an excellent overview on the status of the consulting industry and the challenges it is now facing. The book's strength is that it analyzes the consulting business in all its dimensions, and I recommend it strongly to all executives and decision makers within the business community, consultants and clients alike."

--Roland Berger, Chairman, Roland Berger Strategy Consultants, Munich, Germany

"For this book, Greiner and Poulfelt have assembled a veritable "who’s who" in the world of management and organizational consultants, including themselves. One could not ask for better coverage – comprehensive and broad yet with depth and very current. I know of no better compendium on today's consulting world."

 --W. Warner Burke, Edward Lee Thorndike Professor of Psychology and Education, Teachers College, Columbia University  

 "In the new economy, dominated by intangible assets, consulting firms are among the least tangible of all. Through this thoughtful analysis, the authors help us to understand management consulting more as an emerging science and less as an invisible art. An excellent combination of historical perspective, useful experience and practical examples make this a must read for anyone in the profession."

--David P. Norton, President, Balanced Scorecard Collaborative, (Former CEO of Nolan, Norton Consulting), Lincoln, MA

"This book on consulting is a first for the profession--written by a combination of world experts who provide deep insight into a fast changing industry, its various specializations and the management of consulting firms. This is not just another "how to do it book" but a bible of wisdom and perspective that every consultant should read again and again."

--Warren Bennis. University Professor and Distinguished Professor of Business Administration, Marshall School of Business, University of Southern California

"This book is both timely and excellent. It meets a need that long has existed - to significantly improve our understanding of what is effective, cutting-edge consulting to business. The book covers the key issues of consulting in a brilliant way -- appropriately eclectic and broad, but at the same time focused on what is essential to know. This book will have a strong impact!"

--Peter Lorange, Nestle Professor of Strategy, President, IMD, Lausanne, Switzerland

Format: Paperback
"This book provides an excellent overview on the status of the consulting industry and the challenges it is now facing." NOT. It might have been when it was first released but it is not now. It is a verbatim reproduction of the same book by the same authors in 2005 entitled "The Contemporary Consultant: Handbook of Management Consulting". I thought it was good then. So did my students. But this reproduction makes no mention of the global financial crisis and how it will affect the consulting profession which is the main issue I would have thought that any person interested in this subject would have been most interested in now (in 2009) and going forward.

If you didn't catch the original you may still find this book of interest but an overview of the contemporary situation this reproduction definitely is not. I would have expected a contemporary re-release to at least have a foreword bringing the subject matter up to date. Better still, a contemporary rewrite updating tables, statistics, etc would be even better.

Lazy authorship.

Format: Kindle Edition
Since we first published these expert opinions in 2005, many things have impacted consulting as an industry, most of them seem only temporary to us, except the last one mentioned below on the 24/7 world that we highlighted in the original. In response to the financial crisis, many firms have cut back on hiring and frozen salaries to reduce costs and responded to similar opportunities with clients. Many firms have moved away from strategy issues to tactical and operational projects like outsourcing, investment banking and operational efficiency. The 24/7 world has speeded up where clients expect fast action, and aren't interested multi-million dollar studies. While these changes have affected the consulting industry, little has happened, in our opinion, to change the validity of content in the first edition. We asked the author contributors has anything changed about their contribution, and they responded unanamously that their substance had not changed; as one of them said "not in the least."
