Almost every consulting firm is laying claim to the space that lies somewhere between advice and execution / implementation.
Pure advice has been widely discredited by clients frustrated with the number of recommendations from consultants that are never acted on. Pure implementation would take consulting firms into outsourcing’s dangerous, low-margin territory. So most firms, like superpowers itching for battle over a rich but obscure Balkan state, say they do both. All of which is ironic when you look at the way they behave.
