If this is true what stuns me as much as the cultural sites issue is that a large company would not pay consultancy fees if the report's findings were not aligned to the company's interests. That would be wrong on a whole number of levels. Surely FMG would not do that? Surely not St Andrew? In my many years of experience doing consulting in China, this sounds so familiar. Is it rubbing off?
