Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
There are two reasons people hire consultants:

  1. They need help making a decisions or developing a strategy, plan or framework.

  2. Their management has decided up on a decision or developed a strategy, plan or framework, and now need to legitimize it to their internal stakeholders.

If what you are doing is more a legitimization exercise than a strategy exercise, then your customers are paying you to not question the wisdom of the exercise.
