"Pressure is expected from offshore consulting hubs?"

You mentioned in your article that "pressure is expected from offshore consulting hubs", eg India. While they have a lot of very bright and educated folks in India, there is no subsitute for the experience gained from working in large Western multinationals and under seasoned partners.

Having been in consulting for 20+ years (AT Kearney+Accenture:U.S.,Europe and Latin America) and having friends in many other firms, I have seen a decline in the calibre of consultants. This is attributed to the explosive growth that we witnessed in the last decade: supply could not keep up with the demand. Having an MBA from a top tier school is no guarantee of a good consultant. In a rush to gain market share, a lot of green consultants were put in positions beyond their capability.

So having good academic credentials is good raw material, but not fissionable intellectual capital. Kam

Agreed.

There are huge numbers of overpaid youngsters - 35 or younger -in the consulting business who have all the theory, but lack the people skills and/or the commercial acuity because they have not worked at the coal face.

With degrees now two a penny, they only demonstrate an ability to do good coursework and pass exams. Very few graduates possess genuinely good business brains and if they have not had good hands-on commercial exposure, well, let's just say that standing in the garage doesn't make you a decent mechanic!
