Typically today's tasks in management and consulting include project management, running workshops and strategic work - all complex activities, which require a multitude of skills and competencies. This standard work, which is also well accepted amongst consultants, gives you a reference or cookbook-style access to the most important tools, including a rating of each tool in terms of applicability, ease of use and effectiveness.
In his book, Nicolai Andler presents about 120 of such tools, grouped into task-specific categories entitled Define Situation, Gather Information, Information Consolidation, Creativity, Goal Setting, Organisational Analysis, Technical Analysis, Strategic Analysis, Decision Making, and Project Management. Checklists and application scenarios further enhance the use of this toolbox.
Information provided by this book is:
- comprehensive and sufficiently wide in scope, combined with a practical level of detail without being too academic
- reliable and proven in numerous real implemented cases
- easy to apply due to many different search options, checklists, application scenarios and guiding instructions.
Written by a professional consultant, business analyst and business coach, this book is a unique reference work and guide for those wanting to learn about or who are active in the fields of consulting, project management and problem solving in general.
"This book is of the kind you always wanted but didn't think would or could ever exist: the universal field theory of problem solving." Tom Sommerlatte.
