A niece coming from a conference on Electronic Dance Music.

Consulting gets tricky when you set it in context.  You’ve done the plans.  You know the requirements.  You’re ready to start writing your report.  And yet, you continue to find things that you don’t understand.

The Fatal Mistake

When do they make the mistake?

When do they make a decision that limits – radically limits – options?

Our consulting team is working on a project that is only stumbling forward in the best of light.  So what has happened, we ask.  Has someone made a mistake?
