Process Consulting: How to Launch, Implement, and Conclude Successful Consulting Projects
(Jossey-Bass/Pfeiffer, hard cover, 192 pages)
This is the first and most likely the only book that Alan Weiss has ever written on the methodology and techniques of consulting. This fifth book in "The Ultimate Consultant Series" is crammed with the detailed approaches Alan uses in all major aspects of consulting, from executive coaching to strategy formulation.
He takes you through and demystifies the specific techniques to implement almost every imaginable consulting project, and provides his trademark real-life examples, myth-busting candor, and insightful humor. Every seasoned consultant will find not only additional techniques to add to one's repertoire but, even more importantly, might just discover easier and more cost-effective ways to do what's now being done too laboriously.
Process Consulting is a rare glimpse into the methodology of the man the New York Post calls "One of the most highly respected independent consultants in the country." Don't miss it, or your practice may be missing something. It's also an ideal developmental tool to provide for every working consultant is firms of all sizes.
"Every consultant, regardless of his or her experience, will find enormous value in this book. This is akin to sitting for weeks on the other end of the log with the Socrates of consulting."
