There is no shortage of ” the _____ role is dead ” articles plastering the internet as of late. I certainly recognize that it isn’t a new phenomena publicly shaming a C-level role’s incompetence or historical flaws when juxtaposed to the ever changing landscape we work in. Click headline writing aside the underlying message that we have to adapt, regardless our role, regardless the time, is important. If you are in management or are considering a path in management I don’t think there is a better training ground that in the world of consulting. I look back at my time with Alvarez & Marsal as a critical time in my professional career where I developed a set of tools that help me better adapt to any situation i’m in professionally. I feel lucky to have had the opportunity to learn from so many great people at A&M. Do you have a pivotal experience that helps you adapt?
