strategy is dead

Strategy consulting will suffer for the next 10 years... companies will no longer be focused on the top line.. they are already beginning to turn their attention on costs. Operational consulting, procurement and technology consulting will proper in the years to come

RBk to anon (#1)

I think what you're saying is that growth strategy work will tail off. In the short term, I agree - I don't think it'll last 10 years though.

More broadly, I don't think "strategy" will die - the term will just evolve to be used to describe work that we wouldn't consider "strategy" today. It's a useful catch-all, and consulting firms (esp. MBBB) won't let it go easily.

taxman to RBk (#2)

When the £ is worth $1.55 and the chances of interest rates hitting 1% in 2010 combined with the incentives to spend money, most companies have 'programmes' that run years and are due for 'renewal' with the turmoil in he world markets 'strategy' has never been more important.

Of course if your one of the outsouce and make it cheap mob, then your time has ended and the real thinkers will earn the money now.

I cannot believe the halfwits who decide to illustrate their lack of intelligence and market savvy like guit running down a prostitutes leg.

Who is doing rather well and looking forward to doing much better.

zb to taxman (#3)

All you it charlatan geeks will become extinct as given cost pressures, uncertain and sinusoidal market sentiment, gyrating capital flows and the belated but insightful realisation that project management, change management, IT strategy, IT architecture, IT sourcing, process mapping, process optimisation charlatans are NOT really worth much value to client, particularly clients with a modicum of business consciousness and economic literacy

"I cannot believe the halfwits who decide to illustrate their lack of intelligence and market savvy like guit running down a prostitutes leg."

That phrase didn't really fit in with what you were trying to say but you used it anyway. Did someone else use it and you thought it was cool?

Subtle to Taxman (#8)

Seriously Taxman, give it a rest. You've nicked that phrase off 2 Pints & a Packet of Crisps and used it both here and on eFinancialCareers. I may share your immature taste in watching the programme, but at least I don't quote its "comic genius" as my own.

Get real man. Most eunuchs have got more balls than you to Subtle (#9)

Couldn't have put it much better than Sutble.

Taxman - do you find yourself in social situations laughing loudly at your own jokes then realising that everyone else has gone quiet?

Do you frequently quote the same lines from Red Dwarf?
