A Rule Book for Consultants

1. If you don't know, just pretend you know.
2. If you can't convince them, confuse them.
3. Use "buzzwords".
4. Never admit you are wrong. Just say that others may do it differently.
5. Know Powerpoint. It gives you the power to make half-truths into truths and lies into statistics.
6. All ideas originate from you. Others' ideas are polished to the point where the author cannot recognize them.

If you have more, please add in the comments section. But beware, you acknowledge that your additions become my property :)

Sri, Nice - Those are must need rules for consultants.
One with me is - Don't sit back saying I doesn't have any work, because some one some where in the world will be working very hard to remove you from your job.

Regards,
Mohan.

Hi Mohan,

Thats a good rule, but maybe we can make it a wee bit different - Always be at Work, though not necessarily working.

What you have said applies to everyone, but the rule for these rules is that it applies only to "Smart" consultants ;)

Thanks for stopping by and more importantly, leaving a comment.
