Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"If more business books were as useful, concise, and just plain fun to read as THE MCKINSEY WAY, the business world would be a better place." --Julie Bick, best-selling author of ALL I REALLY NEED TO KNOW IN BUSINESS I LEARNED AT MICROSOFT.

"Enlivened by witty anecdotes, THE MCKINSEY WAY contains valuable lessons on widely diverse topics such as marketing, interviewing, team-building, and brainstorming." --Paul H. Zipkin, Vice-Dean, The Fuqua School of Business

It's been called "a breeding ground for gurus." McKinsey and Company is the gold-standard consulting firm whose alumni include titans such as "In Search of Excellence" author Tom Peters, Harvey Golub of American Express, and Japan's Kenichi Ohmae.

When Fortune 100 corporations are stymied, it's the "McKinsey-ites" whom they call for help. In THE MCKINSEY WAY, former McKinsey associate Ethan Rasiel lifts the veil to show you how the secretive McKinsey works its magic, and helps you emulate the firm's well-honed practices in problem solving, communication, and management.

He shows you how McKinsey-ites think about business problems and how they work at solving them, explaining the way McKinsey approaches every aspect of a task:

How McKinsey recruits and molds its elite consultants;

How to "sell without selling";

How to use facts, not fear them;

Techniques to jump-start research and make brainstorming more productive;

How to build and keep a team at the top its game;

Powerful presentation methods, including the famous waterfall chart, rarely seen outside McKinsey;

How to get ultimate "buy-in" to your findings;

Survival tips for working in high-pressure organizations.

Both a behind-the-scenes look at one of the most admired and secretive companies in the business world and a toolkit of problem-solving techniques without peer, THE MCKINSEY WAY is fascinating reading that empowers every business decision maker to become a better strategic player in any organization.

Synopsis:

Penetrate the McKinsey mystique and learn the secrets of the world's largest and most successful strategy consulting firm. A former "McKinzoid" lifts the veil to show the world how the secretive McKinsey & Company works its magic--and helps readers emulate the firm's best practices in problem-solving, communication and management.

Synopsis:

Ethan Rasiel, a fomer McKinsey consultant, here lifts the veil to show readers how the McKinsey strategic consultancy model works. He encourages readers to emulate the company's best practices in problem solving communication and management.

"The closest thing to getting three years of consulting experience in three hours."­­John Alsop, President, Progress Software

"The McKinsey Way describes a course of analysis that is very powerful, well-written, and effective."­­Peter A. Brooke, Chairman, Advent International

Sharma.Abhi, March 11, 2007 (view all comments by Sharma.Abhi)
The book does give a good snapshot of what happens at mckinsey but fails to give more insight on the mckinsey thought process. Also lacks on information about the different roles of people in the orgnization. Throughout, the book talks about being an MBA to be a Mckinseyite. Is it really true? What about business analysts?
