This is a summary of the three articles that form the debate about the relationship between customer and consultant. This is the second debate that deals with Debates in Consulting Research. The articles are; Schein - The concept of "client" from a process consultation perspective, Werr & Styhre - Management Consultants - Friend or Foe? and Kieser - Managers as Marionettes? Using Fashion Theories to Explain the Success of Consultancies. In addition to summaries of the articles, this document also contains my observations from the lecture, and while reading the articles. The summary is written for an open book exam and is therefore compact and contains some ideas for the essay form of the exam.
