The First Step-by-Step Manual for Achieving McKinsey-Style Solutions--and Success
McKinsey & Co. is renowned throughout the world for its ability to arrive at sharp, insightful analyses of its clients' situations then provide solutions that are as ingenious as they are effective. McKinsey succeeds almost as well as shielding its revolutionary methods from competitors' scrutiny.
Now, The McKinsey Mind pulls back the curtain to reveal the ways in which McKinsey consultants consistently deliver their magic and how those methods can be used to achieve exceptional results in companies from 10 employees to 10,000. Packed with insights and brainstorming exercises for establishing the McKinsey mind-set, this book is an in-depth guidebook for applying McKinsey methods in any industry and organizational environment.
Taking a step-by-step approach, The McKinsey Mind looks at the McKinsey mystique from every angle. Owners, executives, consultants, and team leaders can look to this comprehensive treatment for ways to:
Follow McKinsey's MECE (mutually exclusive, collectively exhaustive) line of attack
Frame business problems to make them susceptible to rigorous fact-based analysis
Use the same fact-based analysis--in conjunction with gut instinct--to make strategic decisions
Conduct meaningful interviews and effectively summarize the content of those interviews
Analyze the data to find out the "so what"
Clearly communicate fact-based solutions to all pertinent decision makers
Capture and manage the knowledge in any organization to maximize its value
