The Book
This is the third book in the McKinsey trilogy by McGraw-Hill after The McKinsey Way and The McKinsey Mind. It is written by Paul N. Friga, a former McKinsey consultant, and co-author of The McKinsey Mind. As in the previous two books, this book is also an attempt to document the learnings from his period at The Firm to share it with the world. He also reached out to several other alumni of the Firm to get their inputs and also included the inputs from a real-life 'engagement' by his students.
This book is purported to be a field guide which takes the insights shared in the earlier books to an operational level. The book is structured around Paul's own framework TEAM FOCUS:
  1. TEAM: This stands for Talk, Evaluate, Assist and Motivate
  2. FOCUS: This stands for Frame, Organise, Collect, Understand, and Synthesise
In the end, he also shares the application of the model in business schools, consulting firms and corporates.

Comments
Just like its predecessors The McKinsey Way and The McKinsey Mind this book is short (less than 300 pages) and easy to read (well-structured and simple English). If you are part of the corporate world or are planning to join it some day - you'll find this book very useful (irrespective of industry preference).

Just like its predecessor - this book also gets a Green for a super-high insights/pages ratio! However, what really sets this apart from the previous two versions are the facts that:

  1. The insights are actionable at an operational level - you get a very clear idea how to bring them to your day to day life
  2. There is a real-life case - where the students are making an attempt at helping the community make a 'super-critical' long-term decision about itself.
