George Mayou, a partner at disruptor consulting firm Class35, says legacy management consultancies need to dispense with the tools, frameworks and ‘templated’ solutions “which rarely result in project success.” He contends that “Legacy consultancies face bureaucracy, outdated thinking and processes which means they’re unable to keep pace with new developments or manage unanticipated disruptions and trends that may arise.” Among his recommendations are: the overhaul of success metrics so that bad behaviour is not rewarded, and an encouragement of “an interconnected workforce, brought together by fluid networks and spaces, creative minds and a shared mission to deliver meaningful business outcomes.”
