I'd like to seek advice on book/online material recommendations on a few core areas that I would like to develop for a future career in consulting. My consulting knowledge base is built by doing case practising, but I want to gain more practical knowledge. I am trying to find some good materials to enable me to have a view on how consultants work and think, and also help me to develop key skill sets:
1. Hypothesis thinking: any book (except "The BCG Way") that provides real-world examples on how to develop and verify hypothesis? I developed an understanding of hypothesis thinking during case interviews, but I want to know how this concept really works in the consulting industry.
2. Problem-solving skill: I know this might sound very general, but are there any materials that would be helpful to develop the problem-solving skills that consultant need? For instance, a book that provides examples/practice questions/answer of solving business issues in different industries?
3. Storyboarding: any books focusing on "storyboarding skills"?
4. Practical consulting cases with recommendations: are there any books that shares real examples (or even pitch decks) on how a strategy consulting firm helped corporates to solve a specific issue?
Thanks for your sharing!
