We few friends have decided to study Consulting.
Though we all have gone through research training, and possess skills required for consulting.
That training was more from an academic research perspective.
Now we wish to revisit these concepts in consulting context.
After speaking to colleagues in consulting, doing some basic googling, and looking at course outlines of a few courses, We have gathered some resources. This blog post is outcome of that.
One of the first things one can do while studying a new topic/subject is to join a course available on the topic.
We found one available on Coursera offered by faculty who worked as a consultant. It's a specialization (series of few courses).
Seth Godin's course on freelancing for consultants is available on Udemy.
Specifically on presentations skills for consultants
Some books are available on the subject (collected from various course outlines). .
Peter Block's following book is suggested by many.
Flawless Consulting Book carries a field book or workbook too.
On structuring one's thought process - particularly for reports and presentations, Barbara Minto's book is highly recommended
A few more books are also suggested on consulting.
And on top of it - a host of HBR cases and articles are available on the subject.
Material is collected. Now time to read and study it.
