Actually, Yoshie is correct. Accenture was the consulting wing of Arthur
Anderson. The accounting wing went under after it was implicated in
the Enron scandal, but the consulting wing continued after being
renamed. They are here now at Columbia University in a big way, but I
can't/won't say more because I want to play it safe.
I will say, however, that I worked with Arthur Anderson consultants at
Goldman-Sachs and grew to despise them. These were snot-nosed kids with
MBAs and power ties who really didn't know the first thing about
building systems. But that didn't stop Goldman from paying $1000 a day
for their services.
