One of the reasons I posted this article was not only because it helped the novice, but it can also help those of us practitioners who have been in the profession a long time. Being a consultant I see a myriad of client practices, while those employed by a company see only what goes on "at home." So I've seen (and continue to see) organizations make several of the mistakes I mentioned in my article. They are adamant that that is the way they want to do things - no matter how wrong I feel their decision. Even large firms. Sad but true. Write me if you'd like specific examples.
