I think I worked for that boss and have met those consultants.  (:

One conversion about 5 years ago we, the Security Officers, were told to
grant all programmers all access to the production environment and the
source code.

The line the boss bought was, "If we don't have this access we won't be
able to do our job AND THE PROJECT WILL BE DELIVERED LATE."  That line
about 'late' was what sold him.  My boss at the time got the request in
writing before we turned the system loose.

We sorted out the mess after about a year of hard work.
