M&A perspective: IT staffing Vs IT consulting

This report is a simple analysis by HT Capital -- a boutique investment banking firm in New York. It basically makes the point that being a staffing company (Vs consulting company) does not provide adequate returns to most investors, especially from an M&A perspective.

Peter Rozsa, co-author of the report, is a Senior Managing Director at HT Capital. He was also my "classmate" at a Columbia Business School executive education program. I have Peter's permission to make the report available here.

  1. A smart IT staffing strategy is critical to achieving business goals. While there is no single formula for determining how many IT employees your company needs, or whether to outsource a part of your IT department, by following a few basic principles you can strike a balance between controlling headcount and meeting business requirements.

  2. There are many factors which influenced the development of Technology Staffing. While it has been acknowledged that it has an important part to play in the development of man, several of today most brilliant minds seem incapable of recognising its increasing relevance to understanding future generations. It is an unfortunate consequence of our civilizations history that Technology Staffing is rarely given rational consideration by global commercial enterprises, many of whom fail to comprehend the full scope of Technology Staffing. Though I would rather be in bed I will now examine the primary causes of Technology Staffing.

  3. The subject of Staffing in Atlanta has been covered intensively by the world press over the past decade. I really, really like Staffing in Atlanta. Remarkably Staffing in Atlanta is heralded by shopkeepers and investment bankers alike, leading many to state that several of today’s most brilliant minds seem incapable of recognizing its increasing relevance to understanding future generations. It still has the power to shock the aristocracy, whom I can say no more about due to legal restrictions. In the light of this I will break down the issues in order to give each of them the thought that they fully deserve

Explorer mentality Vs conqueror mentality

A fixation on competitors and on beating them is evidence of what Amazon's Jeff Bezos calls a conqueror mentality. In contrast, people waking up in the morning thinking how to innovate for the customer -- and having intense fun innovating -- is evidence of an explorer mentality.

The explorer mentality resulted in Amazon allowing negative reviews of its products. Reacting to this, a book publisher objected, saying "You make money when you sell things." But Bezos thought, "We don't make money when we sell things; we make money when we help customers make purchase decisions." So explorer mentality also demands a willingness to be misunderstood for long periods of time.

During his 16 years as CEO, Bezos' Amazon has delivered shareholder returns of 12,266% (industry-adjusted), and the company's value has grown by $111 billion. More in HBR Jan-Feb 2013.

Corrupt media: lessons for better behavior

During the US election cycle, so-called "liberal" media outlets have been misleading the people of America and the world. They focused our attention on Trump's bad WORDS instead of on Clinton's bad ACTIONS. Even their polls and predictions were totally wrong.

Post-election, they continue to fuel division, violence, and racism.

US election reporting in India too has been hate-filled (Chidanand, for example).

In the midst of all this is a fresh, objective voice. Chetan Bhagat is not only an intellectual, but a rare truth-speaker. Here are 5 things he tells the elitist media:
