The staff churn in large service management vendors
LinkedIn is fantastic. A professional networking website for people to connect, share ideas, post discussions that link to external blogs ;-) and generally showcase how much they know about stuff.
However, dig a little deeper into the people behind LI and you can reveal a lot about a person....and the companies they used to work for.

Why is it that so many people that have worked in the enterprise service management space have been employed by just about every company offereing "solutions" in this space!?

- Is it because competing vendors make better offers?
- ...or something else?
