In the UK, management consultancy is a £2 billion per annum business sector. Major consultancy firms are global or European enterprises which match and perhaps lead the emerging global or regional nature of markets. Yet little is known about these agencies of change, these intelligence networks which have come to play such a significant, perhaps pivotal role in organizational and management development. Part I of this two‐part article presents the role of management consultancy in the context of a knowledge typology – and reports on some of the findings of a preliminary research project.
