Description
This course will be focused on the fundamentals of what is known in Strategy Consulting as the "delivery" portion of a strategy (problem-solving) project. All aspects of the consulting delivery process will be introduced, but primary attention will be given to those elements most unique and essential to strategy consulting delivery: Problem definition; work planning (including hypothesis generation and analytical tool selection); and client management (including executive communication). Students participating in a future Katz Consulting Field Study (KCFS) should consider this course a recommended prerequisite. More broadly, the consulting skill set is a valuable addition to your resume. Those planning a post-MBA/MS career in consulting, external or internal, will find this course beneficial. Consulting companies (global and boutique) are active recruiters of MBAs and MS graduates in areas as diverse as Strategy, IT, Supply Chains, Organizational Performance, Analytics and Project Management. Even students taking line management roles will find the strategy consulting skill set to be relevant for future short-term problem-solving or task force assignments.
