- KurzbeschreibungThe selection and evaluation of consultants, consultancies, and consulting services belong to probably the most critical issues in management consulting research. However, the research in these areas is still sparse and does not yet reflect their importance in an adequate manner. Additionally, in recent years new developments in management consulting have taken place, which have still not yet been covered. Observations of the consulting market indicate that both clients? firms and consultancies have begun to professionalize their selection and evaluation procedures. This, in turn, changes the previous rules in the consulting market and stimulates the birth of new business models such as e-consultancies or meta consultancies. This book tries to capture these new developments, and intends to consolidate the existing research and stimulate new research implications in the area of selection and evaluation in management consulting.

- LeseprobeClient Professionalization: Proposed Approach for the Knowledge-Centered Management of Consulting Projects (S.121)<br>Sven Haferkamp, Sabine Drescher<br> Background<br>Due to the growing dissatisfaction with the services of management consulting firms, a new trend in the co-operation between client companies and management consulting firms has arisen: Clients are recognizing that they too have an important role to play in assuring the success of management consulting projects and are beginning to establish a higher degree of professionalism in their dealings with consulting firms.<br>From the standpoint of the client company, the purpose of this professionalization is to manage the consulting process in a holistic manner in all its phases, from the selection and evaluation of consultants to the transfer of knowledge gained in consulting projects to the company's organization, so as to cooperate with consulting firms on an equal basis. In short, client companies are playing a much more active role in the consulting process. A special problem encountered in the holistic management of the consulting process relates to the peculiar nature of the knowledge gained from management consulting projects.<br>Firstly, the experiences gathered by the participants within and as a result of the project are very difficult to codify. Secondly, information concerning project results is generally considered to be highly confidential and therefore cannot be freely distributed within the company in a codified form. Consequently, traditional methods of knowledge distribution are inappropriate for managing this kind of knowledge and therefore new forms and possibilities of knowledge distribution must be identified and pointed out to advance the holistic management of consulting projects.<br>Against the backdrop of these trends, different companies have adopted different approaches in recent years to conceive and implement a more efficient, holistic process for managing consulting projects. Companies have in some cases employed knowledge management methods to systematically structure the knowledge flows, exploit synergies in consulting projects and thereby enhance the benefit of management consulting services. In order to identify suitable methods and instruments in this regard, an empirical study of seven companies in total was conducted in the time from May to July 2005.<br>The objective of the study was to examine the current status of client professionalization and identify concrete measures for the knowledge-centered management of consulting projects
