POLITICS/INDUSTRY: Oooh, vicious but beautiful.

From my favorite Cal health care economist

Pisano is an HBS professor, and for HBS professors books are consulting platforms. A strong consulting platform must demonstrate knowledge of the sector (check), stroke the egos of industry leaders (check), profess a cataclysmic view of the sector if things go on the way they have been going (check), and then offer a simple-to-grasp solution.

I’m not sure they tend to bother with Jamie’s reason #1, though even though Herzlinger, Porter, & Christensen are straight onto #4.
