Required Reading For the Certified Business Consultant Program
Flawless Consulting: A Guide to Getting Your Expertise Used by Peter Block (ISBN# 0-7879-4803-9) is one of the required books for the Certified Business Consultant (CBC) designation. This book is considered the “consultant’s bible” and a landmark bestseller that explains how to deal effectively with clients, peers and others.
The McKinsey Engagement: A Powerful Toolkit For More Efficient & Effective Team Problem Solving by Paul N. Friga, PhD. (ISBN# 978-0-07-149741-1) is the other required reading book for the Certified Business Consultant (CBC) designation. Former consultant Dr. Paul Friga distills the guiding principles first presented in the bestselling The McKinsey Way and the tested-in-the-trenches methodologies outlined in The McKinsey Mind, and combines them with many of the principles and procedures implemented by the military and other organizations. The result is nothing less than the business equivalent of a Special Forces Field Manual.
Both of these books are available at Amazon.com, Chapters, Barnes & Noble or your local bookstore. These are also available at most public libraries.
