Consultants on Consulting

post # 504 — February 20, 2008 — a General post

Before he sold his firm, Richard Metzler was one of the pioneers in building a consulting business. Now, he and his son, Jon Metzler, have begun serializing (on-line) a new book entitled Lore Of Wizards: Consultants On Consulting. A new chapter will be issued every month until the complete book is finished in July or August. At that time, all chapters will be bound in to a single book and offered for sale.

The book is essentially consultants talking about consulting. The Metzlers interviewed nearly 35 prominent management consultants, mostly in their own offices. They intentionally left the interview open ended, that is, they could talk pretty much about what they wanted to talk about as long as the subject was consulting.

Check it out!

The book is comprised of multiple interviews with industry veterans, and captures the wisdom they gained through decades of experience. It really leaves a lasting impression.
