This book makes me strongly believe that "It's not what you know that matters. It's how you understand what you know".

7-step model is one of the all-time-classic frameworks, like SWOT, SMART, BCG Matrix,... We all knew. We're all taught. But do you clearly understand and how to deploy it? Not everyone.

The book aligns with 7-step model. Nonetheless, the most amazing about the book is not about frameworks. It's not so 'new' either 'disruptive'. The most precious thing is case studies for

Charles Conn is a former partner of McKinsey & Company and former CEO of the Rhodes Trust. Rob McLean is Director Emeritus of McKinsey & Company and a former Dean of the Australian Graduate School of Management. This book aims to set out a 7-step programme for complex problem solving but while there’s some useful information here it presupposes a familiarity with some of the logic tree techniques, which makes it difficult to use for beginners.

Often times if that is not the case, a savvy partner will find some way to quietly extricate his team out of the project. Not all business "problems" can be solved, and many never are, as like the proxy-wars great powers engage in with each ...more

I was not a good management consultant. I was much more interested in data analysis than end to end problem-solving. The insights were more interesting to me than the problem. Funny that post management consulting now my job almost completely skips data analysis and I spend most of my time defining problem, structuring it, work-planning and story-telling. Defining and structuring problem are much more fun, as long as the problem is new.

It's hard to write a 5-star book on a methodology, this
