McKinsey

fancy Consultant firm

original home of Tom Peters

Lots of involvement with Enron:

  • Enron is the house that McKinsey rebuilt. The brightest minds at the world's most prestigious consulting firm helped turn the lumbering old-economy gas distribution dinosaur into a new-economy success story envied by every corporation in America.

  • The bad news, however, is that Enron, which was paying McKinsey as much as $10 million in annual fees, is just one of an unusual number of embarrassing client failures for the elite consulting firm. Besides Enron, there's Swiss Air, K Mart, and Global Crossing - all McKinsey clients that have filed for Bankruptcy in relatively short order
