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 20th podcast for the power sector corporate strategy study we will soon release as part of our Executive Program.

In the Steering Committee meeting this morning we were directly challenged by a member of the committee. This podcast discusses the nature of the challenge and how we responded.

The client raised a concern about our skills and also raised a potential conflict of interest we had not considered.

We unpack the challenge and the thought-process we applied in managing this situation. Ultimately, we also explain why and how alumni of McKinsey and BCG who create boutique firms end up limiting their prospects for growth.

Finally, we will discuss the differences in which conflict can be managed by engaging crowds and individuals. The trick is to engage only one of these groups and for a very unique reason.
