Kurzbeschreibung

The groundbreaking follow-up to the international bestseller­­a hands-on guide to putting McKinsey techniques to work in your organization

McKinsey & Company is the most respected and most secretive consulting firm in the world, and business readers just can't seem to get enough of all things McKinsey. Now, hot on the heels of his acclaimed international bestseller The McKinsey Way, Ethan Rasiel brings readers a powerful new guide to putting McKinsey concepts and skills into action­­The McKinsey Mind. While the first book used case studies and anecdotes from former and current McKinseyites to describe how "the firm" solves the thorniest business problems of their A-list clients, The McKinsey Mind goes a giant step further. It explains, step-by-step, how to use McKinsey tools, techniques and strategies to solve an array of core business problems and to make any business venture more successful.

Designed to work as a stand-alone guide or together with The McKinsey Way, The McKinsey Mind follows the same critically acclaimed style and format as its predecessor. In this book authors Rasiel and Friga expand upon the lessons found in The McKinsey Way with real-world examples, parables, and easy-to-do exercises designed to get readers up and running.

Synopsis

This is the first step-by-step manual for achieving McKinsey-style solutions and success. International bestseller "The McKinsey Way" provided a through-the-keyhole look at McKinsey & Co., history's most prestigious consulting firm. Now, the follow-up implementation manual, "The McKinsey Mind", reveals the hands-on secrets behind the powerhouse firm's success and discusses how executives from any field or industry can use those tactics to be more proactive and successful in their day-to-day decision-making. Structured around interviews and frontline anecdotes from former McKinsey consultants as well as the authors, themselves McKinsey alumni The McKinsey Mind explores how McKinsey tools and techniques can be applied to virtually any business problem in any setting.Immensely valuable in today's crisis-a-minute workplace, it discusses: techniques for framing problems and designing analyses; methods for interpreting results and presenting solutions; and, keys for managing teams, managing clients, and managing yourself. The ability to think in a rigorous, structured manner a McKinsey manner is not a birthright. It can, however, be a learned behavior.

Let "The McKinsey Mind" show you how to approach and solve problems with the skill of a McKinsey consultant and obtain the positive results that have been delivered to McKinsey clients for over a century. McKinsey & Co. is renowned throughout the world for its ability to arrive at sharp, insightful analyses of its clients' situations then provide solutions that are as ingenious as they are effective.McKinsey succeeds almost as well as shielding its revolutionary methods from competitors' scrutiny. Now, "The McKinsey Mind" pulls back the curtain to reveal the ways in which McKinsey consultants consistently deliver their magic and how those methods can be used to achieve exceptional results in companies from 10 employees to 10,000. Packed with insights and brainstorming exercises for establishing the McKinsey mind-set, this book is an in-depth guidebook for applying McKinsey methods in any industry and organizational environment. Taking a step-by-step approach, "The McKinsey Mind" looks at the McKinsey mystique from every angle.Owners, executives, consultants, and team leaders can look to this comprehensive treatment for ways to: follow McKinsey's MECE (mutually exclusive, collectively exhaustive) line of attack; frame business problems to make them susceptible to rigorous fact-based analysis; use the same fact-based analysis in conjunction with gut instinct to make strategic decisions; conduct meaningful interviews and effectively summarize the content of those interviews; analyze the data to find out the 'so what'; clearly communicate fact-based solutions to all pertinent decision makers; and, capture and manage the knowledge in any organization to maximize its value.

Because organizational problems rarely exist in a vacuum, "The McKinsey Mind" discusses these approaches and more to help you arrive at usable and sensible solutions. It goes straight to the source former McKinsey consultants now in leadership positions in organizations throughout the world to give you today's only implementation-based, solution-driven look at the celebrated McKinsey problem-solving method."'The McKinsey Mind" provides a fascinating peek at the tools, practices, and philosophies that have helped this much-admired firm develop generations of bright young MBAs into trusted corporate advisors. But the book's practical, down-to-earth advice is not just for consultants. The disciplined way in which McKinsey consultants frame issues, analyze problems, and present solutions offers valuable lessons for any practicing or aspiring manager' - Christopher A. Bartlett, Daewoo Professor of Business Administration, Harvard Business School. McKinsey and Co. rescues the biggest companies from disaster by addressing every problem with its own mixture of logic-driven, hypothesis-tested analysis.

"The McKinsey Mind" helps everyone learn how to think with the same discipline and devotion to creating business success. According to the maxim, giving a man a fish may feed him for a day, but teaching him to fish will feed him for a lifetime. Paying McKinsey to solve your problem may help you for a day, but learning how they do it should help you for a lifetime' - Peter Wayner, Author of "Free For All: How Linux and the Free Software Movement Undercut The High-Tech Titans". '"The McKinsey Mind unlocks the techniques of the world's preeminent consulting firm and presents them in a format that is easy to understand and even easier to implement' - Dan Nagy, Associate Dean, The Fuqua School of Business, Duke University.

2.0 von 5 Sternen schlechte Abschrift von The McKinsey Way 6. Februar 2002
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Als begeisterter Leser des vorangegangenen Werkes The McKinsey Way war ich von The McKinsey Mind außerordentlich enttäuscht. Das vorangegangene Buch wurde auf das Nötigste zusammengekocht und dann mit völlig nichtssagendem allgemeinem Lob wieder verdünnt und aufgefüllt. Die einzigen echten Informationen in diesem Buch sind explizite zusammenfassende Abschnitte des Vorgängerwerkes. Meine Empfehlung: Kaufen Sie sich The McKinsey Way. Falls Sie es schon gelesen haben und gerne die selben Informationen noch einmal wiederholen wollen, lesen Sie halt The McKinsey Way ein zweites Mal.

ein interessantes Buch, sehr benützlich für Berufseinsteiger in die Consulting-industrie. Logischer Aufbau, Vorstellung von wahrlichen Probleme und ihren Lösungen, die einen guten Grund für Fallstudien gestattet.

Von Holger
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Das Buch verspricht, die eher beschreibenden Elemente aus dem Vorgängerbuch "The McKinsey Way" praktisch umzusetzen und führt durch die typische Strukturierung eines Projektes bei McKinsey. Herauskommt eine Anleitung zur Problemlösung, die jedoch abstrakter ausfällt, als es der Klappentext und die Einleitung anpreisen. Mehr Beispiele hätten dem Verständnis gut getan. Zugute halten muß man dem Buch, daß es gut strukturiert ist, sich auf das Wesentliche konzentriert, nicht wiederholend ist und sich nicht in Ausführungen verliert. Eingestreute Zitate von McKinsey-Alumni aus deren Zeit nach McKinsey verdeutlichen die Umsetzbarkeit und Relevanz der Methodik.

Teile des Buches richten sich an Manager, die in ihren Organisationen über ein Mindestmaß an Einfluß verfügen, um z.B. die Arbeitsweise von Teams, des Rekruitingprozesses etc. zu verändern. Einem Berufseinsteiger, dem die Beratungswelt vielleicht geläufiger ist, bringen diese Abschnitte keinen Mehrwert. Der Problemlösungsteil, der den Großteil des Buches ausmacht, ist jedoch gleichermaßen für gestandene Manager wie für Berufseinsteiger (und als Anleitung zur Strukturierung von Case Studies sogar für Bewerber bei Unternehmensberatungen) von Wert.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Sehr informatives und strukturtiertes Buch 19. Dezember 2001
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Das Buch ist sehr gut strukturiert und gibt wichtige generelle Hinweise, wie man das Beste aus einem Business Case machen kann, wie man ein Problem handelt, wie man am besten die Informationen sammelt und analysiert, wie man die Ergebnisse präsentiert und wie man am besten sich selbst und die andere managen kann. Es geht gar nicht ins Detail, aber ist leicht und angenehm zu lesen, und hat mir sehr hilfreiche Hinweise gegeben. The McKinsey Way (vom gleichen Schriftsteller) war im Vergleich wirklich sehr schlecht.

2.0 von 5 Sternen More of the same! 11. Oktober 2001
Von Ein Kunde - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
This book is more talk and no walk. The book itself does not detail anything new and is very similar to their previous book (The McKinsey Way). Infact the authors themselves (in the introductory section of the first chapter) mention that they cannot delve into McKinsey methodologies, but have gone on to describe methodologies that are _like_ the ones used at McKinsey.
If you have read the contents page, you have read the book (this may sound harsh, but its true). Also the book is brand leveraged and does not even talk about the McKinsey ways. All the authors do, is interview some ex McKinsey consultants and get high level opinions from them. Extremely superficial read.
Do yourself a favor - go get a quantitative business analysis book like:
1. Quantitative Business Analysis: Text and Cases by Bodily, et al
2. Quantitative Analysis for Management by Bonini, et al
- and you will have learnt much more than this book can offer. You can then realize what you learnt into daily decision making.
Not recommended. Save your money.

1.0 von 5 Sternen Skip McK Mind, Go for McK Way 14. Dezember 2002
Von S. S. Yao - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
For MBAs or others interested in getting a peek inside McKinsey & Company, just read Rasiels previous book, the McKinsey Way. With some experience working as an Associate (consultant) in New York office, he is eloquent in pointing out the basic consulting skills and some nice-to-have insights into how McKinseyites work. Actually I would recommend Pyramid Principles by Barbara Minto for any MBA student trying to understand how McKinsey consultants think and reason (it will help you in job interviews too), though it is not very reader-friendly and may take you quite some work to understand it.
I agree with a previous reviewer that there are no additional insights on how McKinsey works. I would say Rasiel tried but failed miserably. Like a two-year GE manager trying to describe how Welsh ran GE, Rasiel bit off more than he could chew by trying fathom how McKinsey partners or senior people work and run the firm. 60% of his comments are totally wrong and the worst thing is it would be difficult for outsiders to tell which is right from wrong. Rasiel also tried to stay very high-level and common sensical which basically made most of the book useless.
Skip this one. Dont waste your time and money.

1.0 von 5 Sternen Yes, Jeff Skilling is the most famous McK alum right now 17. März 2002
Von Ein Kunde - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
In the introduction the authors cite three McKinsey alums (those that left McKinsey to pursue other careers) who became famous in the biz world: one of them is Jeff Skilling, the ex-CEO of Enron who lied without blinking at Congress hearings!
I work as a member of the CSS at the McKinsey NYO and find that the book won't help you a bit whether you are looking to find a job at McKinsey, looking to enhance your position at the firm (and thus to avoid getting "counseled out"), or just wanting to learn how "the Firm" discovers magic pills for corporate diseases. The book follows the same hollow structure as Rasiel's first book and is half a rip-off of McKinsey's BCR training program (plus the ILW and some from the ELW) and half useless interviews with McKinsey alumni who boast after they received the latter end of the "up-or-out" policy they were able to show how inferior their new employers were on the management IQ scale. If you want concrete case studies -- which is why I picked up the book -- it contains none. It does contain more words than the "McKinsey Way" book, but nothing that will set fire to your imagination or career or profits.

2.0 von 5 Sternen More of the same! 10. Oktober 2001
Von Ein Kunde - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
Nothing new in the book.
This book is very similar to the first (the McKinsey Way) - more fluff and nothing concrete. Ah! "structure your study", "gather data and interpret it correctly" , ... come on.. anybody knows that! How else does one come to conclusions (other than fact based, structured reasoning). If you have read the contents page you have read the book! (This may sound harsh, but seriously its true!)
The authors themselves mention the fact that they cannot detail McKinsey's techniques and go on to detail their own methodology "BASED" on the McKinsey methodologies. We don't need teasers and brand leveraged superficial mumbo-jumbo. Facts - these guys need to walk their talk! (Read the "About Confidentiality" section in the "Introduction" chapter).
Not recommended!

1.0 von 5 Sternen Doesnt really deliver -- former McKinsey trying to cash in on the name 6. Mai 2006
Von Mark P. McDonald - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
Ok, everyone wants to know how McKinsey does it. Works with leading companies, drives corporate strategy, has great influence and often wind up CEOs in their own right.

Unfortunatley this book does not deliver in any depth in my opinion. It is more of a casual conversation about McKinsey, how great it is with breif discussions of how they work.

Notions such as 'always involve your client' and 'recognize that you may not always have great data' are obvious and not worth the price of the book -- even if you purchased it used -- which I did.

If you really want to know how the McKinsey mind works I heartly recommend K. Ohmae's "The mind of the strategist" Ohmae was Mr. Strategy at McKinsey and his book really shows you what's in the mind of this influencial company and its consultants.

The two who authored this book, are really trading on McKinsey's name, brand and reputation. Its a shame and do not be lured in by the title, read Ohmae's book.
