Description - McKinsey's Marvin Bower by Elizabeth Haas Edersheim
The complete, untold story of McKinsey & Co.'s founding father This is the authoritative and insightful account of Marvin Bower, who helped found McKinsey & Co. in 1939 and served as managing director of the firm from 1950 to 1967, and of how Bower, an attorney, took a concept known as industrial engineering and transformed it into what we now know as management consulting. As Dick Cavanagh, now CEO of the Conference Board, said, Bower "didn't just preach values, he practiced them...He was a teacher as well as a leader." Elizabeth Haas Edersheim (Pelham Manor, NY) founded New York Consulting Partners, Inc., and was the managing director for 13 years until the firm was bought. She is now a strategic advisor to a number of companies. Edersheim spent nearly a year working with Marvin Bower on this book, and the manuscript was completed shortly before his death.
