What the film tapped into, of course, was the public perception that consultants were arrogant know-it-alls, spotty business school graduates who felt they had the experience to tell captains of industry what to do. Thirty years ago, a documentary about consulting aired. Titled, in an even-handed sort of way, “Masters of the Universe”, it purported to lift the curtain on the consulting industry, with predictably unedifying results.

If we want a good example of where orchestration works brilliantly, it’s the film industry, where the full-service studios of Hollywood’s golden era, have given way to a much more fragmented environment in which the input of hundreds of highly-specialised firms is ‘orchestrated’ by a single production team.
