Where can I get non success stories

By jcasqueiro ·
Hi there !

In order to convince a customer of the need of consulting (this particular case is a NT to W2K migration) I would like to find out non-success stories ("see, if those guys had consulting, this wouldn't happen" kind of stuff).

Can anyone refer me to some stories, articles and/or sites containing non-success stories ??

Wrong Track

I think you may want to think of it another way.

I am sure many of us can come up with horror stories where we should have used consultants. Many of us can also come up with stories where consultants costs us too much and in some cases, put the project behind schedule, instead of ahead.

You best bet is to analyse where a consultant can help you. Do you need technical knowledge you don't have? Do you need planning expertise you dont have? Do planning estimates on scenarios where you have the ideal consultant and where you don't. If having a consultant is the difference between acheieveing a corporate objective and not achieveing it - then its a no brainer.
