Management Consultants Push Into Ad Biz

It's time for the ad agencies to start hiring expensive MBAs to counter the push of management consultants into the ad turf.

AdAge reports: "Accenture. IBM. McKinsey. These consulting giants are casting a lengthening shadow on Mad. Ave., a thoroughfare long avoided by these left-brain-dominated organizations. The day ad execs have long feared — when management consultancies' bean-counting, process-wielding barbarians will storm the marketing world's gates — may well be nigh, as each of these titans is finding its own way to make money in the ad business." Since all of this year's MBAs are already taken — by Accenture, IBM and McKinsey — you can convincingly fake it yourself by picking up some of the jargon with this handy corporate bullshit generator before walking into that meeting.
