Transcript

  • 1. All CONSULTANTS are Evil
  • 2. Some people think all CONSULTANTS are evil. Here are some of the things they say …
  • 3. They cut you open to gain understanding …
  • 4. … but then fail spectacularly to truly comprehend your inner workings.
  • 5. They construct detailed plans with prepackaged abstractions ...
  • 6. … but when it comes to implementation “WTF” acquires a whole new meaning.
  • 7. They have a way to suck out your very best ideas in a spirit of collaboration ...
  • 8. … then claim it as their own in a breathtaking “I’m a superhero” act.
  • 9. They whip out their cookie cutter solutions ...
  • 10. … and you fall to pieces in unexpected ways.
  • 11. They make a massive song and dance to get you committed …
  • 12. … then send a hapless minion to do the work (or worse, THEY turn out to be a minion).
  • 13. They get lyrical about the impact of their awesome solutions ...
  • 14. … but all you get is the breathtaking impact of their misguided conviction.
  • 15. They enthusiastically share vast volumes of “stuff” ...
  • 16. … that admirably succeeds in entangling you in inescapable perplexity.
  • 17. They lead with the tunnel vision of a prewritten script ...
  • 18. … and when you go off the cliff it’s your fault … well it is, isn’t it?
  • 19. They demand your weight in gold ...
  • 20. … and when they’re done you become just another skeleton in their closet.
  • 21. All consultant are evil. Or are they?
  • 22. There are some truly excellent consultants. I speak from personal experience.
  • 23. They come in with highly specific knowledge and expertise. They help identify problems and create solutions. They lead you through a minefield of challenges.
  • 24. Don’t let preconceptions rob you of the opportunity to ask for advice and guidance.
  • 25. Look for a consultant that captures your attention, offers you valuable, engaging information and one that others endorse as a leader in the field.
  • 26. Look for: “Wow, that’s impressive”.
  • 27. Look for: “Aha, I get it”.
  • 28. Look for: “Yippee, I win”.
