Sometimes you read or hear something that just sticks with you. In my case it was a quote from Albert Einstein. He said that we cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them. It just stuck with me probably due to the fact that over the past few years I’ve been thinking more and more about the need for my industry to do things better. I’m a management consultant. I help my clients deal with problems which could take many forms. As can the answers. Over my two decades in the industry I’ve developed strategies, I’ve helped cut costs, I’ve designed new business models and I’ve facilitated hundreds of conversations.
I believe that there is a growing dissatisfaction with traditional consulting. Clients are smarter. They want things faster and cheaper and their issues are more complex than ever before. I also think that consultants are becoming somewhat jaded with the work they do.
Which leads me to this blog. I want to share some of my thoughts as well as what I’ve seen work with some of my clients. Share interesting readings and my point of view on things and finally hear from people who would like to be part of the debate.
