sometimes it's hard to say why clients make their decisions.  and it may
have nothing to do with logic.  i've found that out thru the years the
hard way.  

the force driving the decisions could be everything to very limited
funds budgeted for the project, to a brother in law deal, to the ceo is
dating the consultant on the sly.  or it could be that you did a
perceived injustice to them and they won't listen to anything you say.
