Review This book adds a great deal to the study of consulting. It makes consistent and strong arguments, backed up by a solid empirical base, for a process-based approach to consulting work and to boundaries and knowledge flow within it. Management Learning An important contribution to the practice and research of consulting. There are rich descriptions, a framework that organizes the findings including surfacing interesting inconsistencies and gaps, and intriguing suggestion about future enquiries.
