Explaining Vs Training

I haven’t ranted against the software con$ultant industry in a while, so I decided that now is as good as ever to do it again. To that end, I submit Twitter exhibit A to the jury:


I guess that “explaining” how to do a stand up meeting to executives in which 3 simple questions are asked/answered only takes 5 minutes, but “training” them how to do it takes an intensive, four day on-site course at $2K  per day… plus expenses.

As a general observation, consultants love to make the obvious and mundane look like a complicated and unfathomable hairball that only they can unravel for you, at a “fair” price.
