A movie other than Office Space with a consultant

Saw the new Batman movie today. For me it lived up to the hype.

I saw it with my team of consultants here in Nashville. So of course we all laughed when one of the characters turns out to be a consultant. In one of the scenes, Bruce Wayne's company is possibly going to buy a Chinese company, and a consultant talks about the "due diligence".

We do that! Due diligence is basically just what it is in the movie - when you're going to buy a company, you want to make sure it's a good deal and the numbers are as advertised. Of course we also do every other aspect of management consulting - strategy, operations, organization, marketing, etc, and for every type of institution and across the world.

The hardest part of my job is explaining what I do for a living. Most people just don't get. But now at least I have something to point people to other than the Bobs.
