A model for Consulting interventions

Blake & Mouton developed a framework for designing consulting interventions in their 1985 work on ‘Consultation’.

This built on their earlier work on management style and also on ideas developed by Schmuck and Miles (1976), and has been followed by evolutions of this thinking by Reddy (1994) and others.

Fundamentally, these ideas prompt a consultant to think about several key factors:

  • Who is my client?
  • What are the underlying or focal issues?
  • What intervention style is most effective?


In practice, a consultant might ask a number of straightforward questions in thinking how to approach an engagement:

  • What problem are we trying to solve?
  • Whose problem is it?
  • What are the facts?
  • What are the root causes?
  • What is the plan of action?



McKinsey’s 7S model (amongst others) aims to broaden thinking in diagnosing ‘systemic’ problems
