A peek into the future of consulting?
The Economist had an early review of a new book that promises a look into the future of professional work (including, I’m assuming consulting).
The summary seems to be that technology is going to take away a lot of the work that we normally do. I agree on the mundane things (gathering data, looking for trends, …); I’m less convinced when it comes to the non-sexy, but essential part of consulting (e.g. managing clients, understanding client dynamics / politics). Looks interesting.
