Reading List for Consultants


Dear all,

Can you please share your reading list for consulants?
I will start with a book that helped me understand the core of consulting as a business.

- David H. Maister: The Trusted Advisor

- www.consultancy.co.uk

- WirtschaftsWoche (German)

Feel free to copy and expand the list.

Other interesting reads would be:

  • The pyramid principle by Barbara Minto
  • The Boston Consulting Group on Strategy: Classic Concepts and New Perspectives by Carl W.Stern

  • Consulting: A Practitioner's Perspective by Mohan Kancharla

Good luck.

In my opinion, the best book that truly describes management consulting as a business and profession would be:

"Management Consulting: A Guide to the Profession" by the International Labour Office and edited by Milan Kubr.

Bear in mind, however, that the book is immense (roughly 900 pages) but extremely thorough.
