9780812926347: Dangerous Company: The Consulting Powerhouses and the Businesses They Save and Ruin

Dangerous Company chronicles the successes, failures, and practices of the biggest and most influential firms in the consulting industry. O'Shea and Madigan chronicle such stories as the one involving the consultant who provided state's evidence and landed his client behind bars, the Fortune 500 company that was billed over $75 million in consulting fees yet was left on the brink of bankruptcy, and the role played by consultants in the rejuvenation of Sears.

Review:

As the millennium approaches, management consultants have become ubiquitous--and extremely powerful. Often using secretive methods and usually drawing huge fees, they regularly make decisions that might affect thousands of people and cost billions of dollars. But are they ultimately worth the upheaval they can cause? In the first detailed examination of this incredibly influential industry, Dangerous Company: The Inside Story of the Great Consulting Companies, journalists James O'Shea and Charles Madigan offer a cautionary tale.

About the Author:
