Yes but with a major IT project taking at the very least 18 months, and I have experience of modernisation programs planned over three years, you want your key staff to stay for the whole project life cycle. The chances are that the key staff you really want will be independent contractors.

So the management now has a choice between getting the skills they really want and losing them every 6 months -- or -- settling for lesser talent as permanent employees who will at least see out the project (and its 50% overrun).
