Opt-in to our newsletter at to receive free sample Insider content that we share nowhere else.

Each year we pick one consulting study and narrate the analyses, client interactions and recommendations so you can understand how the strategy is developed. Detailed videos and power-points to accompany the podcasts can be found on our website.

The podcast teaches both technical analyses and soft skills like communication. We discuss concepts to help listeners advance their strategy, operations and implementation skills, enhance their critical thinking ability and build their executive presence.

This is the next podcast for the power sector corporate strategy study we will soon release as part of our Executive Program.

This podcast covers three topics, but the primary topic is gender equality on consulting studies: women in consulting. We are, of course, a major proponent on gender equality but my observations is that sometimes female managers only want the “good” things that equality brings while avoiding the “bad” things and passing that work onto male colleagues.

Equality, unfortunately, means accepting and working with both the good and bad things.

This podcast discusses this concept and how to manage things.

We discuss the week 3 of the study where 9am to 1pm of every single day is dedicated to training for the client. We explain why so much time is dedicated to training and our unusual approach to sharing everything with the client. We basically transfer everything we have to the client. Literally everything.

We finally discuss many of the “surprises” we are uncovering which have the potential to radically alter the direction of the study.
