    Yeah.... watch this project..

    It'll go 10x over budget, and 200% over schedule.

    Accenture can't organize a kick in a riot

    Words fail me...

    So Accenture bagged another e-Health project? I guess they have a lot of talent lying around after losing the NHS NPfIT contract.

    So it's going to another overpriced enterprise bigcorp catastrophe.

    Accenture - the team that brought you the phrase "Justifiable non-delivery".

    Oh I've just realised - they're not the same.

    Oh well, it's the ignorant leading the blind again.
