    Really? A little bit of a blanket condemnation, wouldn't you say?

    Too true if I may say so and built on experience of having been involved with lots of so called consultants in various different professions who as the joke implied didn't know their ar** form their elbow

    This about covers a large percentage of consultants throughout the country and from all walks of professions, a little like teachers who class themselves as the greatest thing since sliced bread and yet fail to even stimulate the very students they are supposed to be educating.

    The best known acronym known for the consultant syndrome is KISS and most don't even know what this means

    Good evening to you @witch hope you having a good one

    It wasn't supposed to be a social commentary. It was just a joke.

    Yes, I know, I wasnt responding to your post, just the comment. I think the joke was funny and it does certainly cover quite a lot of consultants BUT not all.
    How does bossman KNOW that it covers a 'large percentage' of consultants - I mean, I can see that is what he THINKS but how does he KNOW.
    There really ARE some consultants who do go into an organisation and provide a service that the organisation cannot provide for themselves, who investigate things and provide answers.
    There are a lot of carp consultants out there, I don't disagree, but you cannot say they are all that way. Sometimes - quite often in fact - it is the organisation who cannot decide what the consultant needs to do and therefore any results are not really what is wanted.
    Lets just be a bit more discerning here
    Not like Bossman to be quite so bombastic!!!
