- Can be placed in any role - complete lottery
- Contrasting styles within managment

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Convince managers to take a more holistic view of the company, rather than focusing on their own projects - management work within silos on their projects when some staff members could also contribute their skills to the wider Accenture community on new clients where they may have a specific interest.
