The Firm. They helped create the bar code. They revolutionised business schools and created the corporate behaviours that now rule our world. They reinvented the idea of American capitalism and ruthlessly exported it across the globe. McKinsey employees are trusted and distrusted, loved and despised. They are doing behind-the-scenes work for the most powerful people in the world and their ranks of alumni include the Chairman of HSBC and William Hague, Home Secretary. Star financial journalist Duff McDonald uncovers how these high-priced business savants have ushered in waves of structural, financial, and technological shifts but also become mired in controversy across the years. Discover how they played a critical role in building Enron's disastrous corporate structure and how they've been instrumental in the Coalitions controversial NHS reforms. With a writing style redolent of Michael Lewis, this is a gripping take on one of the world's most powerful companies.
