How dare we? How dare we list the people we deem to be the 25 most influential consultants and then profile them within these pages? And, as if such a list weren't already fraught with journalistic landmines, we went ahead and ranked the listees. After all, if the appeal of a list is to discover whose been included or excluded, than why not heighten the experience with a little numbering? To all those who find lists trite and hollow, we apologize, but for those of you who enjoy unmitigated flights of fancy: Buckle up. We’ve got a great list.
