"When my son was a year old, he was given a sorting toy: a box with different shapes cut out of the lid through which matching shapes can be pushed. Eager to set him on the right path in life, I sat with him, meticulously teaching him how to recognise the shapes. After a few goes, I handed it to him. He took the lid off, threw all the bricks in at once and looked at me as if to say: “If you want the bricks in the box, why are you messing around with all this round brick in the round hole stuff?” In choosing a management consulting firm, it can be tempting to do the same, to remove the lid and throw a bunch of consultants in. But investing time and thought before the project starts yields dividends later on."
