Reviews - What do customers think about Management Consulting: A Guide to the Profession?

Commendable Guide to the Consultancy Profession  Jul 17, 2006

This is a commendable book that gives useful advice and guidance to those who wish to enter the management consulting profession. The book is comprehensive which makes it an important reference book to those who wish to have an in-depth insight into consulting.

The author explores what the profession entails, the elements that makes one a successful consultant, how one should market and sell the consultancy services, the considerations for setting a fee, how one can be a successful consultant and some of the pitfalls that one needs to avoid, among several useful advice.

The reader is also provided with useful tips on the costs that one should expect and the need to ensure that one establishes a trusting and ongoing relationship with clients.

This is an important reference book in my library that I recommend.
A solid book on consulting services management  Mar 23, 2001
Comprehensive in style yet featuring very to-the-point content, this once was my favourite book about consulting management. Today, I prefer more practical management consulting writers such as Alan Weiss.
Comeptence  Nov 6, 2000
Different from many books promissing the easy way to "become a successful conultant in 5 days". A good primer and refence book. Kubr presents key issues and methods in management consulting in a conzise way giving an overview on the consulting process, areas of work for consultants and management of a consulting firm. Extensive bibliographic information makes it a source of reference. Useful for people who wnat to engage in consultancy other than management.
