High-Performance Consulting Skills
The Internal Consultant’s Guide to Value-added Performance

By Mark Thomas

To copy Thomas’ phrase this book is all about moving from a “colleague to client” perspective and it delivers a proven approach. It is a manual of stimulating and invaluable skills that all support functions who are desperately seeking to deal with the pressures of outsourcing and the “value-added” questions can use on a daily basis. IT, HR and Finance professionals can all benefit from his real life and practical approach. I thoroughly recommend it.
