      I have a Master s Degree in industrial organizational psychology and am working on a Ph.D I say this so you will know where I am coming from in this review This book is filled with jargon that appears to be unique to the McKinsey firm Much of the book seems to be an advertisement for the firm, indicating that anyone who works for this firm is a superhero in the business world, and only the absolute best of the best reminiscent of Top Gun would ever be chosen I do believe that there is wisdom to [...]

      Worth reading Especially if you are in consulting I like the beginning of the book especially, and will be turning back to some of those pages for reference.Thinking logicallyThe book starts strong by introducing MECE Mutually Exclusive Collectively Exhaustive I use it often in my teams Think of it as building a decision tree, where you cover every option, and none are overlapping Each branch in the tree also has MECE sub branches When deciding or investigating something, draw the tree on a whi [...]

      This book which I keep calling the Minkey Mind after Peter Seller s character in the Pink Panther is an illuminating view into the brainwashing and McKinsey speak that many of America s CEOs and consultants spout without much forethought While McKinsey s scientific approach to problem solving break it down into pieces, come up with a hypothesis, test your assumptions can sound yawningly trite, there are a few McKinseyisms that are worth being aware of One is MECE mee cee , for Mutually Exclusive [...]

    4. Wan-Ling, Wong on said:

      Having been a consultant at some point or rather, this book is just the very epitome of what a consultant really is Someone who cons you out a big, fat fee, and then proceeds to insult you by telling you exactly what you already know.

    5. Maciej on said:

      Good overview to some of McKinsey s techniques and perspectives Interesting book gave me a few things to think about, but it s a fairly superficial treatment.

    6. José Almeida on said:

      Interesting but ultimately doesn t really add that much to the author s previous book The McKinsey Way.

    7. Liang Gang Yu on said:

      This book shows McKinsey s approach to break down business challenges, analyze them, generate action plans to solve them Those skills, marked as McKinsey way, are applicable to than high income consultants, but general employees, managers, executives They are common best practices The author nicely put them together Those knowledge by themselves are MECE Mutually Exclusive, Collectively Exhaustive Among them, MECE principle might be the most important take away from the book, followed by Mckins [...]

    8. Anne Pan on said:

      The book outlines certain principles At first glance, I thought those are quite common sense But again, I was told that management consultants consistently work in a manner which is quite common sense while others tend to forget at time.The issue is I feel this book like a promoter for the firm, as described in the book, effective selling by pulling

    9. Jeff on said:

      Interesting book about McKinsey s methods Practical tools for use in consulting consultative sales Does not make you want to work for the Firm

    10. Simon on said:

      GoodInteresting, and occasionally inspiring However, I wish we could get a deeper version with examples and or cases I d recommend it as an inspirational tool.

    11. Grace Huang on said:

      Lost interest after 30 pages in What s good 1 Conclusion first, evidence second and hypothesis last consultant presentation style2 Data and ChartWhat lost me 1 Self promoting advertising book of the company2 Idealistic old school management style3 Makes you believe the only way to become the best of the best is to go to top biz school and get into this company working 90 hours a week, forgetting health and personal life 4 Very little know how and substance

    12. Maysara Hammouda on said:

      A great book for anyone who is interested in knowing about consulting companies, especially McKinsey company The content of this book is useful even for normal companies or personal businesses It will help you to structure your thinking and give you a road map to help you in evaluating the feasibility of your business idea.

    13. Kanti Brahma on said:

      The book The McKinsey Mind by Ethan and Paul is a master piece for professional seeking structured approach to problem solving The book could broadly be divided into three chapters Analyzing, Presenting and Managing The authors have further divided this book into several chapters for each of these sections In the section Analyzing, the book covers the ways a problem statement could be formed through appropriate hypothesis formulation designing of project delivery including staffing, resource all [...]

    14. Joseph on said:

      The McKinsey Mind is a great resource for creating a framework in one s own company for addressing any issue, be it an integration project, staving off a threat, or starting a new venture There are some areas in the book where it varies in quality and depth, likely because there might be some proprietary information involved An example of this involves research and knowledge management, were the text reads like an ad for how much data, research, and content that McKinsey possess, than how one m [...]

    15. Manu on said:

      A very informative book that focuses on the framework used by McKinsey across all of their engagements This book is very crisp and to the point The problem solving framework focused on logic tree, hypothesis, issues tree, analysis design, data gathering and presentation has been described very well with a sample problem that spans along different phases of engagement leveraging the framework Since the book is to the point, it is a quick read and these frameworks are highly applicable whether you [...]

    16. Toni on said:

      Acting as a consultant is new in my world and this book nailed it for me Overall, the book described analysis, presenting, and managing self, teams, and clients , there were a few gems there that will help me with framing the issue, focus my communication, create buy in, and definitely help in managing the client, both expectation and buy in Yes, the book contains consulting jargon but know that much of that jargon is not just for McKinsey ites, they are words used in many every day consulting i [...]

    17. Tom Robbins on said:

      A very short, clear, and simple insight into some of the secrets behind the success of the management consultancy, Mckinsey I really liked the way the author divided the book into short and to the point chapters, and used short quotes from successful alumni to back up most points It really does provide clear cut tools, principles and guidelines that could be applied not just to management consultancy but to most lines of work delegation, use of evidence and many other things were discussed I hav [...]

    18. Khalid Almoghrabi on said:

      a simple to follow book, yet short sentences and chapters maybe because the material was split into two books, the mckinsey way I mean I hoped the book were written by a mckinsey alumni since the entire book was based on interviews and research, not experience, and that swallowed the information within If you entitled to new managerial position in a service company then this book can be helpful, even though it was originated for the purpose

    19. Eric on said:

      A great follow up after McKinsey Way but a different take it shows you how to apply the skills learned to career outside McKinsey I think the authors do a good job trying to make the McK ways applicable and relevant as much as possible to the outside world, the world outside the firm Though somewhat repetitive, this book should be treated like a lesson so repetition is fine I believe I will be referring to it time to time during my consulting career.

    20. Owen Coyle on said:

      Very difficult to decide between 3 and 4 stars here It was a very easy read with some helpful problem solving tips and interesting testimonials Overall 3 stars due to limited content and somewhat common sense recommendations The answer to what makes McKinsey s consultants the best value adding minds in business are not on these pages.

    21. Blake Kanewischer on said:

      Some interesting tools here, but most of them boil down to simplifying ways to solve a problem which most project managers have stumbled across at one point or another Can t argue with the tools I use many of them intuitively, and it was a good reminder to see that I m on some of the same track But really a problem solving book than a McKinsey book For that, read his previous book.

    22. Sujata Sahni on said:

      A book put together by the McKinsey Alumini on the structure they have used consistently to effectively solve their clients problems The methodology used for Framing th problem, Designing the analysis, Gathering the data, Interpreting the results, Presenting the Ideas, Managing the team, client and self.

    23. Nitesh Kanthaliya on said:

      Second in The McKinsey Trilogy, I would recommend this book to anyone, who is providing solution to external or internal clients in any capacity Very well structured and built on the roots of McKinsey way, this book is a must read for anyone foraying into consulting.If you have read this book, you can skip The McKinsey Way You wouldn t loose much.

    24. Ankur Gupta on said:

      Quite a good book covering the basics of problem solving in the management consulting domain Useful starting point for beginners in this field or those who want to understand all the various aspects of how The Firm solves a problem in a client engagement.

    25. Ravish on said:

      A book to be read by anyone and everyone who belongs to consulting world or aspires to be in one Clearly laid out structure with lots of relevant examples and exercises to apply the given techniques in your own circumstances worth a read and learn

    26. Pete on said:

      Great perspective on problem solving, exploring a lot of overlooked points of problem solving persuasion, stakeholder management, and buy in I highly encourage it to anyone who, as McKinsey prides themselves, want to make change happen.

    27. KO on said:

      2.5 stars, gives some insight into how consultants try to think It s not clear from the book that they do, but at least companies like McKinsey have enough resources and processes in place that just following those can sometimes get stuff done
