A good framework

Excellent and simple to follow methodology I experienced working as counterpart of Mc Kinsey consultants. A good set of deliverables makes the book a great toolbox for every executive.

Toolkit for better decision making

Businesses and other organizations usually solve their problems through team efforts. The business consulting firm McKinsey has developed special expertise in team-based problem solving and change management. In this book, former McKinsey associate consultant Paul Friga describes TEAM FOCUS, an acronym he had invented to describe McKinsey’s method of problem solving. He integrates this McKinsey-based method with other approaches. getAbstract recommends this hand

Author shares his thoughts and impressions after doing some work in McKinsey but mostly after doing a university consulting project. It is good analysis given author's experience in the business, but it hardly qualifies as a must-read or a bestseller.

One of the worst books I have ever read.
Kiran shetty
Very basic Book. Not as good as two other books Mckinsey mind and Mckinsey Way. Somewhere the academician view is shadowing consultants approach. Just average

Some good insights here but, not a must-read. In addiction, the reading is quite boring.
Used in Collaborative Problem Solving course at Tuck

This was an ok read. I read it in preparation for interviewing with consulting firms at the end of grad school. I was hoping for more insight.

“In fact, during my research and interviews with McKinsey alumni, the Talk element of the model was consistently ranked the most important of all interpersonal elements. Why is it that the simple act of talking can cause so many problems in team problem solving? Generally, because we don't have specific Rules of Engagement; because we like to speak more often than we listen; and because we get personally attached to our own points of view.” 0 likes
