Consulting in Legoland: the jazz of small-scale management consultation in the improvisation on standards
Stockholm University, Faculty of Social Sciences, Stockholm Centre for Organizational Research (SCORE).
2001 (English)Report (Other academic)
Abstract [en]

Large global management consultancies of US or Semi-US origin are often seen as important carriers of uniformity in management knowledge across the globe. This is an important characteristic of the recent development of the industry on a macro level, but one may question whether it is representative to let these firms be “spokespersons” for the field as a whole. This paper argues that the standards these actors travel in may constitute a standardised Legoland for consulting in the world, but that this Legoland is far from the reality of small and medium-sized locally based consulting firms. It is argued that they live in a world of standards for management and consultation, where the most important strategy for survival is to improvise.
