Cringely on IT Consultants

This week’s Pulpit column at Cringely paints the truest picture of the I.T. consulting world I’ve read in such a public forum in a long time.

One of its best points is this one:

Who does YOUR IT consultant really work for?

A question I’ve often advised people to ask. If the short and long term goals of a consultant aren’t aligned with your organization, it’s virtually impossible that any working arrangement is going to end with both parties happy. It, of course, takes two to tango and companies can be as much to blame as consultants are.
