Let's face it, it's true, when u take something like creativity(ez software solution) and commoditize it, regardless of how u mass produce it, quality will not be the best. If u dis-agree then ask urself have u ever created something, developed any code, if u haven't then ur not qualified to answer me here. If u still disagree then ask yourself a second question , would u trust ur loved ones on a flight where the pilot read a book and passed a test ONLY, never flew an aircraft .
Software solutions are to be creative not mass produced. Why does every client we go to ask for innovation, cause everyone knows the "factory". The client line applies To all consulting where people read books and fly planes...

D3 - good point, assume ur reference here is to self driving cars, that is just way ahead of its time like google glass, Innovation is to find better ways(safety first), not by flying with eyes closed regardless of experience. Like finding flight patterns dynamically where u get tailwind and using innovation to remap flight path so u get there sooner, while keeping a flight map updated so no one else runs into u in air :)

Rather ironic (no satire) reading this. Have been at Booz and another Big 4. First thing that jumped out at me at ACN was how much more involved that the MDs were (in delivery) compared to my other experiences. It wasn't necessarily showing up at client meetings but they were involved (in person) at deliverable reviews providing feedback that wasn't just bullshit fluff (saying something to say something). Sample sizes are your friend when drawing conclusions.

So funny

A8 would you fly on a plane where the pilot is experienced but he says i will operated with my eyes closed just in the name of innovation !

Doesn't matter, still sold

Agreed with a5. I saw the cal on my past projects AT LEAST once a week. But still funny nevertheless

So true based on my preference for anecdotes and feeling better about my own insignificance at any cost!

@A8 come on man. No one's being a grammar Nazi here, but at least explain your points coherently. I had no idea what the fuck you said after reading it the first time.
