Editor's Note: Top 25 Consultants

A few of us choose Einstein over Churchill. Others may pick John Lennon over FDR. But very few of us ever exclude Lincoln. It seems Honest Abe never misses a meal. Or at least not when it comes to meals cooked up by this anachronistic question: Which three people from history would you most like to have dinner with? If you have ever answered this question (and who hasn’t?), consider yourself guilty of that all-so-popular sin of people-ranking.

There. Now that we’ve established that we’re all nothing but no-good list mongers, we’d like to take some of you to task for dismissing our Top 25 effort as a frivolous endeavor, whose motivations are not in the best interest of your institution, or as you put it: “We don’t believe in putting any one individual above the institution.”
