Second Edition

Joe O'Mahoney and Calvert Markham

  • The book offers real-world practical guidance on the necessary skills required by management consultants, as well as advice on entering the industry and succeeding in this demanding role.
  • New real-world case studies in every chapter ensure the theory behind management consultancy is fully supported by relevant practical examples.
  • Practitioner insights throughout the text provide essential advice from key figures in leading organizations.
  • The text has been fully revised and updated throughout, to reflect new trends emerging from the impact of the recession; the decline in government spending and the increased importance of sustainable and environmental consultancy.
