Alan Weiss’s Monday Morning Memo® – 10/19/09

Alan Weiss’s Monday Morning Memo®’s mission is to help readers to thrive.

October 19, 2009—Issue #5

This week’s focus point: The Alberta health ministry has come under attack for spending too much with consulting firm McKinsey that critics say could have saved hundreds of hospital beds from being closed if reapplied. AIG, the epitome of the financial collapse, has dismissed McKinsey because of excessive consulting costs. Other firms are suing consultants, and many clients are now demanding flat fees instead of time-based billing. Some law firms are (finally) offering project billing rather than six-minute increments! No matter what your profession, emphasize value and results, not your time and tasks.

Monday Morning Perspective: The house of Savoy never finished a war on the same side it started, unless the war lasted long enough to change sides twice. — French newspaper remarking on the flight of a royal family during WW II
