Management consultancy is to come under the spotlight in a three part series by documentary film-maker Roger Graef on Channel Four. The programme aims to investigate the mysteries of consultancy and shed light on the benefits of consultancy, the side that is often marginalised by the press. Graef will take a look at how management consultancy has developed from the 1900s to the present. The series will also take a look at consultancy at work in the UK and Eastern Europe. Graef has made over 80 films but is best known for gaining access to hitherto closed organisations, including British Steel and Occidental Petroleum.
