Commit & Deliver: On the Frontlines of Management Consulting
In Commit & Deliver, Cyrus Freidheim—management consultant, two-time CEO of public companies, author of The Trillion-Dollar Enterprise, and veteran of more than thirty corporate and nonprofit boards—provides vital mentorship in memoir form.
Using the framework of his storied career, Freidheim explores how career and personal decisions can be prepared for and made, how to grow professionally, and how to think through complex business problems from a practitioner’s perspective. Commit & Deliver provides intimate insight into what management consultants do, how they interact with their corporate clients, and what it takes to become a good consultant. It paints a picture of what life is like at the bottom of the business career ladder, what is expected, and what one must bring to the table. Most important, it shows you what it takes to move up the ladder in virtually any industry. Finally, he walks you through preparing for and living a productive retirement.
