Management consultants are not always the solution to a struggling company. Have you ever considered that consulting for companies is similar to a fad diet?
In “I’m Sorry I Broke Your Company,” author Karen Phelan, who is a business consultant, explains how trying to consult for struggling companies may just offer a temporary fix.
Phelan, as a consulting firm founder, explains how tailored tactics to “fix” business may actually cause damage.
She spent her days as a consultant creating models and programs with the purpose of taking out the human element from running a business. However, businesses are run by people, not formulas and machines. Her book dissects a wide range of consulting treatments and their flaws. The book’s purpose is to challenge conventional business methods and offer alternative recommendations to theories that did not work for Phelan.
“I’m Sorry I Broke Your Company” can be purchased on Amazon.com for $12.43.
