Brian: DON'T focus blame on "consultancy".  

The management style you lambaste is prevalent
to the point of being pandemic.  The problem is NOT lack of 
accountability, it is rather one of "to whom are we accountable?"
My products are NOT reviewed by geeks, theorists, and 
techno-pedants.  My products are accountable to testers
who are accountable to marketing who are accountable
to stock holders and well-drillers and factory owners.

They want a profit product, not a perfect product.

"Good, fast, cheap; pick two" says it well.

Consulting is why the IT infrastructure and security of this
country has gone to crap.  There is no accountability.  There
is only the pressure to complete things in unrealistic

Sound security policy has been put out-the-window by
consulting, support non-sense, etc...  You have to "tear it
down" so you can "dumb it down" for people.  And it happens
in the most crucial of our nation's networks.

Why?  Consultants aren't accountable in most cases.  And
that's typically because the clients want it done now.
