Buono (management and sociology, Bentley U.) et al. draw from papers presented at the Academy of Management's Management Consulting Division's fourth international conference, held in June 2009 in Vienna, Austria, and focusing on the changing paradigm occurring in business and management consulting as a result of changes in the business world. In the 19 papers, academics, consultants, and organizational practitioners from Europe and North America consider changing conceptions of consulting practice and intervention in Austria and Germany, various consulting approaches, and the role of consultants in responding to crisis. Further sections address the dynamics of international strategy work; organizational development across borders and cultures; challenges in applying organizational development interventions in hostile environments; collaboration, cooperation, and networks; aspects of professionalism, including academic research, assessing consulting practices, consulting knowledge, and long-term interventions; and new approaches, such as a solutions focus in performance assessment and maturity grids to examine organizational capabilities.
