In his new book, The Lords of Strategy: The Secret Intellectual History of the New Corporate World (Harvard Business Press), Walter Kiechel III (MBA ’76) traces the rise of modern management consulting from the 1960s to the present. Kiechel’s narrative revolves around four key individuals who helped establish the corporate strategy movement that underpins today’s multibillion-dollar consulting industry. The four men are Bruce Henderson (MBA ’41), founder of The Boston Consulting Group; Bill Bain, creator of Bain & Company; Fred Gluck, longtime managing director of McKinsey & Company; and HBS professor Michael Porter (MBA ’71).

In addition to the pioneering roles played by this innovative quartet, there is another leitmotif — a fifth key player — that runs throughout the book: The industry would not exist as it does today without the contributions made over the years by scores of HBS alumni and faculty, and by the School itself as an institution. Excerpts from the book follow.

Fifty years ago, Kiechel writes, corporate strategy did not even exist as a concept, let alone as the foundational element for an entire industry.
