Props to Warren for pointing this Forbes article to me. Steve Denning, contributor, adds: What killed Michael Porter’s Monitor Group? The One Force that Really Matters to the magazine’s offering. First, the article is fairly long. But stick with it. Second, it exhibits some of the characteristics that it condemns in Porter and strategy consulting generally (can you say “perfectly predictable and explainable… in hindsight?”). Third, it’s about time that somebody took aim at the claptrap that Porter helped create.
Long time readers may know that this is an old saw for me.
