Don't let simplicity mislead you; this is right on target,
This review is from: Flawless Consulting: A Guide to Getting Your Expertise Used (Hardcover)
Re-reading this book after several years, and overseeing perhaps 125 student consulting projects, I am more impressed than the first time. In the past I'd taught consulting entirely on a practicum basis (common practice, by the way), but recently decided to add readings. We bought a couple dozen books - my assistant read all of them - and we settled on Block for the process and Biech's The Consulting Business for how to run one's own practice.
As I watch my undergrad and grad students work through their projects, I find that Block speaks realistically and clearly to the essential challenges they face throughout. I know from experience that some people dislike his style. But I've also seen that, if they gain experience, they change their mind. I wish I'd required this (not just recommended it) long ago.
