A functional consultant who through the liberal use of Blue Steel and Magnum mesmerize their clients into believing that they are consistently hard at work when actually the opposite is true. This also applies to their extreme ability to a speak convincingly about their supposed field of expertise while in fact knowing the bare minimum possible. Such consultants can usually be visually identified by their high level of metrosexuality, use of cuticle cream and belief that they are "professionally good looking".
That lead consultant always talks like he knows his stuff, but he doesn't even know how to long into the system and needs to use a reference book to find stuff. He should get the Academy award for best actor for "Best Portrayal of a Consultant on an Implementation"... what a Hollywood Consultant.
