Word Count: Megan Findakly MGMT- 626: Management Consulting Pract & Meth Professor Fowler 08 December 2016 Case #3 “Divorced from ethics, leadership is reduced to management and politics to mere technique.” James MacGregor Burns After three years at GL Consulting (‘GLC’), Tim Hertach, a junior partner, learned about the “Proposal to Enhance Value,” the new revaluation proposal presented by two other GLC partners. Hertach immediately questioned the new structure, which provides senior partners, who compose 20% of the firm, with 80% ownership of the firm with huge windfalls, and more disconcerting, it leaves the other 80% of partners trying to pay for it.

While he would be $250,000 richer on paper, he would have to stay longer with the firm to have the shares vest.
