Why Hiring the RIGHT Management Consultant is Important
Two companies had a boat race; one won by a mile.
The losing company hired a management consultant to figure out what went wrong.
He reported that the winner had one person managing and seven people rowing while
the losing company had seven managing and only one rowing.
The losing company immediately restructured its team upon the consultant's recommendation.
Now they had one senior manager, six management consultants and one rower.
In the rematch, the winning company won again; this time by two miles.
So the consultantís final recommendation to the losing company was to fire the rower.
