business analysis and consulting books [#permalink] New post 20 Mar 2014, 04:35
Hello,

I'm looking for some further reading in my current job (business analyst) and in my prospective post-MBA job in consulting.

Anyone has read one of the following books and wants to share his experiences with me:

the management consultant ( http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/0273 ... C1T8ET9774)

Flawless consulting ( http://www.amazon.co.uk/Flawless-Consul ... 8PSJDKT6QF )

Key strategy tools (http://www.amazon.co.uk/Key-Strategy-To ... 8PSJDKT6QF)

business analysis techniques ( http://www.amazon.co.uk/Business-Analys ... C1T8ET9774)

I'm looking for a general book on the ins and outs of management and strategy consulting (like the first two books), and a more practical book with tools and techniques ( like the last two books). Anyone who can recommend one of those, or something else?

Thanks

Thank you Brandon, i'm not going to be able to read them all (or at least not at this moment), but i'll see go through them to find what interests me. Thanks also for the technical links!

Who wrote the tools and techniques book?

Thanks

Meant that to be a category. Added colons above to clarify.
