Just in the past two weeks, I’ve had conversations with people in our industry where the very same topic came up and using the almost the same verbiage. I’ve never had quite this thing happen and am convinced these people don’t know each other. It’s so creepy and weird that I had to share this.
Some new years bring great hope for better projects and project teams that function more efficiently. This year didn’t seem to be one of them. I began the year feeling jaded about where many industry projects are headed and in the way that teams work together. Speaking with others in the industry didn’t make me feel any more confidence, either. I had the feeling that I was the ONLY person left that wanted to talk about consulting ethics or working together more effectively. Now, while we all know that we’re never the only person who cares, it’s not an easy feeling to shake.
