Management con-sultancy

The Independent has run an interesting piece from a management consultancy insider on the tricks of the trade.
Matthew Stewart says: 'I landed the job by providing a credible response to this question: How many pubs are there in Great Britain? The purpose of that question, I realised after the interview, was to see how easily I could talk about a subject of which I knew almost nothing, on the basis of facts that were almost entirely fictional. It was an excellent introduction to management consulting.'
I'm sure there's lots of people out there who would get away with it if they could.
