This book provides a collection of articles that seek to discuss the emergence and dynamics of consultancy as a knowledge industry and consultants as knowledge carriers—a research area which has so far received only limited attention. The book is edited by Matthias Kipping and Lars Engwall, who present in their introduction a framework for analysing consulting as a knowledge industry and categorizing the academic literature on consultancy. The authors argue that three levels of analysis—industry, firm and process—need to be studied in order to understand consultancy. Perhaps there is a
danger that this framework might be perceived as a structural account of the consultancy industry, leading to a neglect of the individual consultants and reinforcing the structure–agency dualism.
