This is a topic which is very dear and close to me. In fact, it is why we started Firmsconsulting and run it the way we do. Very, very few people truly understand the culture of management consulting. Many existing consultants also struggle to understand the culture. Consultants are professionals, not business people. I would strongly urge you to listen to this podcast.
Why we do what we do, is far more important than what we do. Intent matters in this professional. It is a privilege and a calling.
Consulting is not just about being analytic and solving cases. Average consultants are merely strong on analytics. While this base is important, the great consultants understand the power and privilege that comes with the ability to set management agendas. This podcast hopes to educate aspiring consultants about the enormous privilege that comes with the skills and abilities they will hopefully master, and why they need to place ethics at the center of their thinking.
