    I swear to god I was subjected to a consultant who said “Here’s the thing” about twenty times a day before subjecting us to another patronising discussion on paradigm paralysis.

    He was tall, from the North East and wore an embroidered shirt. He also told me that graphs were the best, but pictures or target statements were also perfectly acceptable in my A3. I honestly used clipart to replace measurements. Oh God, what did I do????

    I’ve been subjected to this process on too many occasions and there is certainly a smell about it! Hmmmmmm, Very entertaining post.
