Summation: The Entrepreneur vs. The Strategy Consultant

Found at Summation: The Entrepreneur vs. The Strategy Consultant.

The Entrepreneur is very different from the typical McKinsey-esque strategy consultant. Both are extremely smart, driven, persistent, creative, and determined. But I have found that there are some major differences.

Seth’s Blog: Organizing for joy

Joy and let not us forget the relevance of joy for customers

Organizing for joy

Traditional corporations, particularly large-scale service and manufacturing businesses, are organized for efficiency. Or consistency. But not joy.

McDonalds, Hertz, Dell and others crank it out. They show up. They lower costs. They use a stopwatch to measure output.

Sylvian Cotton’s On design thinking

Found at On design thinking.

There is a lot of buzz in recent years in the business, public service and academic communities about what is called “design thinking”.

As I am running a consultancy that proposes to use design thinking as a framework for innovation in business and in public services, I feel liable to express my view on it.

Why We All Hate Consultants (and Why It’s Okay)

When my company is stuck, I’m just as inclined to hire an outside advisor as other leaders are. But I hate it. Hiring a consultant means something needs to be fixed, or grown, or that I don’t know what to do next. I’m not talking about contractors whom I hire to do what I need and they are supplemental labor. I’m talking the consultants where I hire them to advise me. Hiring them usually means we’ve already failed in our first effort. It mostly means we are vulnerable. We need. So I believe we should all hate consultants. You probably already do. It’s okay. I give you permission.

Consultants do 3 things that suck.
