The reality of a healthcare consulting career can be vastly different from how people often imagine it. Although an executive might transition to a consulting role, management experience and knowledge do not guarantee success. Executive Turned Consultant provides a road map for executives contemplating a move into management consulting. The book walks readers through key considerations and includes firsthand accounts of executives who have navigated the transition.
Topics covered include:
• Why and how to conduct a mid-career assessment
• How consulting compares with executive management
• Common mistakes executives make when launching a consulting career
• The pros and cons of joining an existing firm versus going into solo practice
• How to determine the best time to move into consulting
In his previous book, The Healthcare Consultant’s Handbook, author Scott A. Mason offered early careerists insight into the essential role of healthcare consultants and what truly makes a consultant exceptional. Now he provides practical guidance to help healthcare executives make informed career decisions about becoming professional consultants, with eyes wide open to both the risks and rewards.
