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."
This Handbook of Management Consulting is appropriately title The Contemporary Consultant, providing and excellent overview on the status of the consulting industry and the challenges it is now facing. The bookÂ'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.
For this book, Greiner and Poulfelt have assembled a veritable "whoÂ'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 todayÂ's consulting world.
