The Bleeding Obvious Award (1)

The Foreign Office is "over-staffed, inefficient and resistant to change", according to a report prepared by a consultancy firm, Collinson Grant, appointed on behalf of the department itself. Can we look forward to the BBC employing Collinson Grant or would they simply say "Here's one we prepared earlier"!?!

Why do so many senior management teams often require the 'reassurance' of highly paid external consultants to confirm what most low level employees already know, that their organisation is over-staffed and inefficient, only to sack the said staff to pay the consultancy fees!?! Collinson Grant should be praised for their honest report but they must heap praise on the senior management team if they are ever to be re-appointed!
