Hello Clan members and fellow mates,

I am very curious to know about what the texts which are like a must read for Management Consulting aspirants.

I've read 'The McKinsey Way' which talks about being MECE and Being highly Structured with thoughts and the initiation of an initial hypothesis.

I really want to know more text which are related to the Consulting World.

Hey Raman,

It depends on what you want to know about consulting. The hard skills and required to make it in the job or about the industry as a whole. So depending on what you need following are the books I'd suggest:

Hard Skills: 

1. Lords of Strategy

2. BCG on strategy

3. Competitive strategy - Michael E Porter

4. The Goal - Eli Goldratt

Industry as a whole:

1. The McKinsey Mind

2. The Firm 

3. The Lords of Strategy

 

Hope this helps.

Chet

Hi Raman,

By far one of the best books that I've read on consulting is 'Management Consulting' by Milan Kubr. I would say try to get your hands on this book because it has everything you want to know about consulting. This book will give you all the insights you need to get into consulting. Topics that are covered in this book are 'What is management consulting?', 'Types of consulting areas for example, Human Resource Consulting, Operations Consulting, IT Consulting, etc.', 'What is the business model of a consulting firm?', 'How consultants charge their clients', 'How are the consultants paid' and much more. 

Further, you can also refer to books like 'The Pyramid Principle', 'The Flawless Consulting', etc. 

Hope this helps!
