In a recent post, I had indicated that I was waiting to hear back from The Hackett Group regarding their acquisition of Jibe Consulting and the possibility of doing an interview on my radio show.

Possible Hackett Group Interview: What Does Jibe Acquistion Really Mean?

May 10, 2017

I should know fairly soon if The Hackett Group agrees to do an interview on my radio show. While I have an opinion on what this acquisition might mean “beyond the headline” itself, it is important that you hear all sides to what I think is probably one of “the” sleeper stories of the year. […]
