"The fast forward MBA in project management" helped me after getting staffed on a PMO engagement and quickly having to catch up on PM best practice. You might still want to do some research into how the PMBoK and Prince2 are structured, in case your client is basing their PM methodology on either of those.

What do the requirements for equity partner look like at your firm? How is origination handled (ie once you bring in a client every new matter is your origination whether they called you or someone else at the firm, whether you do the work, and even whether for insurance clients the adjuster assigning to a colleague doesn’t know who you are)? My firm has one female equity partner- who doesn’t have a family. How can I work to change the mold for others to get there?

I’m gearing up for my first hire/direct report. Which management/leadership books would folks recommend reading for inspiration, food for thought?

If all the top consulting firms made anonymous decks or gave anonymous pitches to a client, eg no branding and the client did not know which firm made which deck, do you actually think that the client would prefer MBB?  Is MBB actually coming up with better/more innovative solutions? I feel like I see many repeat or slightly altered solutions on almost all of my cases, are these really things that people at Deloitte/Accenture etc aren’t coming up with?

Hi Ladies - Trying to decide when to officially go on leave. I was thinking two weeks before I’m due but everyone keeps telling me to work up until the due date to have more time at the end with the baby. I’m honestly just tired of working and barely get any sleep at this point. Wouldn’t mind having some me time (I have 5 months leave) but also realize the baby could come early.

Hi, I have been in the business where I am for over 15 years. Even after I became a MD, there’s always few who undermines my skill sets and knowledge. Similar to the other posts I’m tired of this (whack a mole game, squid game) and I still have 3 years prior to vest my pension. I’m debating losing my sanity vs. losing good pension. To be honest unless I can move laterally to another role, I’m bored with what I’m doing right now.
