 McKergow Quarterly

The McKergow Quarterly is sfwork's newsletter and update publication. The title of the publication is, of course, a deliberate poke at the famous McKinsey Quarterly. While we may not be able (yet) to match the scope and reach of that famous title, we aim to bring you the latest developments in the field of Solutions Focus - still way ahead of the big consulting firms.

Appearing every three months, you'll be able to read about our practical tools, latest assignments, publications, events, customers and how to join in with us in learning and applying SF ideas to 'building progress rapidly in tough situations'.

Receive The McKergow Quarterly FREE by signing up using the box on the right hand side of the screen.
