Thirty-five years, but who is counting....Posted Sep 18, 2018 by: A Personal Note from Sandy, HRS CEO
I came upon an early 1980s article written by David Warsh, Boston Globe: "Land of the bean and the consultant". The article described how consultants are to Boston what "producers" are to Los Angeles. There are more consultants in Boston than anywhere else in the world, Warsh claimed in his story. He talked about some of the giants, Boston Consulting Group, Bain and Company, and Arthur D. Little in Cambridge. He spoke of the smaller operations and how there are strategy boutiques all over town. "Consulting, like producing, continues to have an aura of mystery about it", indeed. (David Warsh - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/...)
September, 2018 marks thirty-five (35) years that I have personally been working as a management consultant. I like it so much because I enjoy helping people solve real problems; offering various perspectives and options for solutions; improving the group think, advancing processes and plans. Finally, there is objectivity, working with diverse organizations, and bringing influence to bear. I can't imagine a more rewarding profession.
