The Ultimate Consultant
(Jossey-Bass/Pfeiffer, hardcover, 288 Pages)
Alan Weiss's most sophisticated book on all aspects of consulting, The Ultimate Consultant is the first of a seven-book comprehensive series on consulting for the solo practitioner, small firm principal, and large firm consultant.
The book includes detailed techniques in the areas of acquiring Fortune 1000 clients, marketing and publicity, passive income, joint ventures, international business, working with small clients and family owned businesses, managing time, life balance, and, of course, setting value-based fees.
This is not an overlap with either of Alan's highly successful prior consulting books, Million Dollar Consulting® or Getting Started in Consulting. This is the first of what will be the library for consultants in the 21st Century, requested by the publisher, and continuing through 2003.
"Alan Weiss is a consulting genius who attacks problems the way he lives life--with unconventional flair and a relentless intellect while delivering extraordinary results. The Ultimate Consultant captures all the reasons why I continue to call Alan time, and time, and time again."
