Carlyle sells stake in PA Consulting

Carlyle has sold its stake in PA Consulting Group in a deal valuing the UK-based advisory firm at £1.8bn, which ends a highly-acquisitive five-year period of private equity ownership.

Great Consulting Requires Great Clients

It’ll probably come as no surprise that some of my students (at Dartmouth, where I teach at the Tuck School, and at Harvard, where I’m with the Kennedy School) are curious about the world of consulting.

Also unsurprisingly, one of the questions I’m asked most often, especially by my MBA students, is this: What makes a top consultant?

While the curiosity and questions are expected, my answer surprises some: I tell them the key to being a highly successful consultant is having great clients.

Though I’ve been affiliated with one of the world’s most-prominent business consulting firms for three decades, consultants come in all sizes and flavors, from tiny one- and two-person specialty shops that narrowly focus on such things as crisis communications, logistics, professional development and security, among other things, to broad-based global firms, such as

Biden Aides’ Ties to Consulting and Investment Firms Pose Ethics Test

WASHINGTON — One firm helps companies navigate global risks and the political and procedural ins and outs of Washington. The other is an investment fund with a particular interest in military contractors.

But the consulting firm, WestExec Advisors, and the investment fund, Pine Island Capital Partners, call themselves strategic partners and have featured an overlapping roster of politically connected officials — including some of the most prominent names on President-elect Joseph R. Biden Jr.’s team and others under consideration for high-ranking posts.

Now the Biden team’s links to these entities are presenting the incoming administration with its first test of transparency and ethics.

The two firms are examples of how former officials leverage their expertise, connections and access on behalf of corporations and other interests, without in some cases disclosing details about their work, including the names of the clients or what they are paid.

And when those officials cycle
