It systematically dissects exactly how headhunting works in practice, based on a range of case studies, practical fieldwork and extensive interviewing. It considers the workings of the business internationally, arguing that a search firm cannot offer a fully effective and comprehensive service without a global network. It attempts various projections of the directions in which executive search is likely to move in the future. Finally, it offers a rough and ready "Which"-type guide to the principal headhunting firms, providing as much detail as private partnership firms are prepared to divulge, and incorporating a comparative appraisal of their ranking in the market, areas of specialism and style of approach.
