Specialist vs Generalist Consultancy Job Recruitment
When looking for a career refresher with a new management consultancy job or if seeking to appoint a consulting professional to a consulting job in the industry, to whom do you turn: a specialist or a generalist? The long-running conundrum continues.
Financial results published recently by Marks & Spencer, the ‘general retailer’, raised an interesting strategic option; M&S is not a grocer yet its grocery range was the prime contributor to the sales’ increases, even in the face of food-price deflation. How likely is M&S to switch into the ‘specialist’ food retail sector? An intriguing thought!
