Quotes from the book:
"This is the book I wish I could have read myself about 30 years ago when I first started my career as a young management consultant."
"When young people are asked about their dream job, management consulting is often high on the list."
"... when I was asked by the managing partner of the consulting firm what kind of consultant I wanted to become, my reply was honest surprise: Are there really different kinds?!"
"What is the most important skill for a leader or manager to master? I would say it is the decision-making process."
"Perhaps the most important strategic decision in management consulting is how to price your services, both how much you charge and what for."
"Yes, I claim that to understand the internal and interpersonal politics of any organization, is a necessary prerequisite for a good management consultant."
"I am sure that many organisational problems are based more on politics than on policies…"
"… it will draw significant resources away into internal disintegration and fights, rather than freeing the same energy for external opportunities and tasks."
