Managing a Drupal Consulting Firm DC CPH 2010 notes (and some thoughts)

Summary: Great diversity in approaches, some common themes: choosing clients who are well-resourced and good to work with, getting a project manager, relentlessly working on internal communication whether in-person or virtual, and sharing everything good.
