    Josh, consultancies have NEVER been successful doing this. IBM tried it a decade ago with CRM and failed, a number of boutiques have tried to assemble “complete solutions” from disparate vendor solutions and failed, the examples go on and on.

    It’s ironic that as an expert in competencies, Mercer doesn’t understand enough about its own core competencies to realize this is way outside its ability to develop and execute. I have the utmost respect for you and your analysis, but if history is a guide, this one is an absolute dog that has almost no chance of long-term success.
