Standard answers for friends and family: management consultancy

“You’re evil: you cut 5,000 jobs at the last company you advised.”

I was part of a team that made a recommendation. If the business was  doing well, why call on us to improve it? If it was doing badly, it  will be gone sooner or later anyway. If that happens, you’ll lose  more than 5,000 jobs.

“You just tell people what they know already.”

If they knew it already, why didn’t they act on it?

“…and all that happens at the end is that the executives award  themselves big bonuses.”

That was not part of the recommendation we made.

Now using WordPress.

Realising the need for a more powerful blog, I’m now trying WordPress. The main benefit being that you can categorise posts, which makes it easier for readers to focus on just the subjects that they’re interested in. I’ll probably soon be migrating my existing blogger posts over to this blog; may take some time, plus I need to see to my website as well, which has a few essential bits missing!
