The Book
The book is written by two former McKinsey consultants who attempt to document the learnings from their period at 'The Firm' to share it with the world. They also reached out to several other alumni of the Firm to get their inputs as well.
They share how 'the McKinsey Mind' works (as the name suggests) pivoted around a 'Strategic Problem Solving' model. In this book, they focus on the following elements of the model.:

  1. Analysing: This includes Framing, Designing, Gathering and Interpreting
  2. Presenting: This includes Structure and Buy-In
  3. Managing: This includes Team, Client and Self
Just like its predecessor 'The McKinsey Way' this book is short (around 200 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!
