…up or out – but still good friends

Interesting research from INSEAD highlights why the high turnover in consulting firms can be healthy.  The social capital of departed employees can be extremely valuable in gaining industry insight and ideas as well as more direct introductions to new organisations, and of course potential clients. The revered alumni networks are key to this.  See the original INSEAD article, http://bit.ly/dRDktv.

ADD is shortly to commence some further research into post-consulting careers and the role of the alumni networks. Findings will be posted here later in the year.
