It first studies the nature of management gurus as celebrity consultants, where it lists three different aspects of their roles, namely as accomplished orators, supporters of management fashion, and authors of bestselling books. It then discusses in detail the features of these three types of management gurus. This article also tries to determine if there are any gaps in the existing literature on gurus.
