Great article. I think a lot of firms bake in this mindset with the way they build a methodology or a template off the back of an engagement. It looks so clean and neat!

Who would think there was a lot of pain, missteps and learning that went into the initial delivery... and likely hasn't made it's way into the framework!

I was wondering whether it's the mix of this... and the expert mindset that consultants believe they need to wield, that creates the anti-patterns to your 6 considerations above!?

P.s., In the UK, there's the Chartered Management Consultant (ChMC) certification now... do you see that as the opportunity (missed or otherwise) to have a 'hippocratic oath' in place?
