About this product
- DescriptionThe traditional model of consulting places an emphasis on diagsing a problem and finding a cure. But in today's business world of globalized organizations, rapid kwledge proliferation, and the intertwining of ecomies, that approach is becoming less and less viable; problems are quickly redefined, new kwledge (and ownership of that kwledge) is constantly surfacing and being challenged, and solution is a permanent solution. Consulting in Uncertainty articulates a model of consulting that addresses the uncertainty and interconnectedness of the world in a post-industrial, kwledge era. Emphasizing outcomes and inquiry over 'diagsis', Brooks and Edwards outline this new consulting model, as well as the skills consultants must bring to the table in any uncertain and dynamic environment. Integrating practical kwledge with scholarship, this book covers skills such as: Relational skills and the consulting relationship Cultural awareness and related skills Contextual analysis Facilitating inquiry Collecting and efficiently analyzing data or information Consultants and students of consulting, as well as managers, teachers, counselors, and even parents, will find this book enlightening and useful in navigating today's uncertain world.
