Why Accenture etc. isn't doing consulting

Hey all you Accenture, Roland Berger, Bearing Point, ... girls and guys out there, 90% of you isn't doing consulting.! Why? Read What is Consulting?, which is a great article from Bruce Eckel.

Lots of people that call themselves consultants do things that I would not personally consider consulting. I think consulting is when you have some kind of special expertise -- come by through hard struggle and learning -- that you transfer to a group of people, in a relatively short period of time, and in a way that is unique for that group. I also think that consulting involves addressing particular issues faced by that group.

Nonetheless, they get paid like consultants and that's all that really matters.
