AI: The robo management consultant experiment

McKinsey's consulting model generates in excess of $1 Million per employee

Just how hard would it be to create a Robo Management Consultant that replicates McKinsey's advisory model?

Textural analysis of the HBR suggests the question can be resolved if we can reduce the activity of the management consultant into a value equation

For example...

Increase [w] by Reducing [x] and/or Improving [y] by Changing and/or Creating a new [z]

Having developed the value equation we can then randomise the outputs based on the assignment objective

For example...

We can increase
