Intervention Research: From Conceptualization to Publication
This volume continues to build on the relationship between the Research in Management Consulting series and the intervener-researchers at the Socio-Economic Institute for Firms and Organizations (ISEOR) in Ecully, France, extending that partnership to our recent work with the French Foundation for Management Education (FNEGE), a foundation dedicated to closing the gap between the teaching and practice of management in France. As part of the Foundation's multifaceted activities-which range from seminars and an advanced training initiative for French doctoral students to joint programs with international organizations an associations-FNEGE partnered with ISEOR to sponsor a series of workshops on developing high quality intervention-research. This volume is one of the results from that endeavor. Although intervention-research helps to uncover valuable insight into organizational dynamics and performance, the challenge of capturing and disseminating that insight to both academics and practitioners is entrenched in the rigor-relevance debate. While we are witnessing increased calls for actionable knowledge, this ideal, unfortunately, remains a rather elusive concept as critics contend either that rigorous academic research falls well-short of relevance to the practitioner world or research that proves to be valuable to practitioners falls short of the rigor expected in academic life. This volume is intended to help bridge that divide. Drawing on the FNEGE-ISEOR intervention-research workshop, the volume contains 18 chapters that explore the intervention-research process, from initial conceptualization, to implementation, to publication. The volume is published in French and English

Management Consulting Today and Tomorrow: Perspectives and Advice from 27 Leading World Experts
This new edition gathers over twenty-five experts to outline the theory behind consulting, providing insight into change processes and management issues in the field. The business of consulting has grown faster than most other businesses, due not only to increased demand by clients, but also from the innovative capabilities of numerous consulting firms as they develop new services.

Significant updates detail the effect of economic troubles between 2010 and the present; analyze the market response to consulting in recent years; and provide a more thorough understanding of how consulting is applied in the different areas of a business, such as operations, marketing, and finance. Introductions written by the editors offer further insight into the themes and learning goals of each section, helping readers to recognize the elements of a successful consultation and utilize their new skill set. The text concludes with a look at the future of consulting with regards to ethics standards and how strong manager-client relationships contribute to financial growth.

Learning Interventions for Consultants: Building the Talent That Drives Business
Innovation is one of the key drivers of success in modern business, and continuous learning is what drives innovation. Building on the theory and practice of consulting psychology and the science of learning, along with principles of human resources development, this book articulates a five-step process for designing and delivering effective learning interventions for individual employees, teams, and entire organizations. This process includes conducting a needs analysis, developing a contract that sets reasonable goals and expectations for clients, designing learning methods to meet the organization's needs, implementing the program and tailoring it as needed, and evaluating outcomes to ensure ongoing improvement. The book also outlines three distinct types of learning-adaptive, generative, and transformative-that help employees cultivate essential skills and adapt their behaviors to improve job performance and promote organizational change. Guidelines for blending new learning technologies-including games and artificial intelligence-with in-person workshops are also reviewed. Case examples bring these learning methods to life, demonstrating how they are applied in real-world settings.

Marketing Organization Development: A How-to Guide for OD Consultants

Assessment and Diagnosis for Organization Development: Powerful Tools and Perspectives for the OD Practitioner
Although the theory and methods of organization development (OD) assessment and diagnosis have been covered in other books, there is a lack of practitioner-focused guides that introduce real-world case studies and tools rooted in the methodology. This book will fill that gap, providing practical perspective and insight from practitioners and consultants currently practicing OD assessment and diagnosis. Organization Development (OD) differs from management consulting in that OD assessment and diagnosis is not a prescriptive consulting engagement. Instead, OD methods include engaging clients to build change leadership initiatives customized to their particular situation. OD is not about a consultant telling a client company what to do. It is about an OD professional guiding client companies on their journey towards the best end point for their particular situation. This book will address that journey. The theory and foundational principles of OD are covered, but the primary focus is on providing practical applications to businesses. While the book is grounded in sound academic theory, its strength is its practitioner-focused methodology containing vignettes and tools that individuals can use to help guide the assessment and diagnosis efforts in their own or their client organizations.
