الكتاب الأروع والأهم على الإطلاق في طريقة حل المشكلات. كنت أبحث عن هكذا كتاب لأكثر من ٥ سنوات وكثفت بحثي عن كتاب مشابه في آخر سنة ثم وجدته صدفة

قرأته مرة وسأعيده عدة مرات أخرى. وسأعود له كل مدة. وسأنصح به أي شخص يعتمد عمله على حل المشكلات.

Not perfect, but great

Though this book is not perfect, but it does deliver on complex problem solving. It provides a clear framework, structure and reasoning. Easy to understand case studies and real life examples. Very good diagrams indeed! Highly recommended to those who wants to consult, or just practice problem solving everyday in their life.

Pretty good, pragmatic overview of basic McKinsey methodology.
Nothing terribly knew (though I did not know that they started to peddle Design Thinking too... people like it so let's give it to them).

But well organized, to the point and pragmatic!

This book feels like peaking behind the curtain in a feel processes, good flow of how information and methods are presented. I just felt design needed a bit more exploration there, being a designer myself, but I understand its not the focus here.

Will work perfectly as a manual.
