I've never heard of an IT transformation consultant. Does anyone know a IT transformation consultant? From googling around it seems like this is someone who would go figure out how to change things in the company to make it better. Is it more like a sales job, or is it somewhat like engineering consultancy?

Dunno, but it sounds like a lot of arm-waving will be involved. And sharp suits.

I make it a general policy not to apply for any job where I don't understand the job title. But perhaps I simply lack ambition

Sounds more like consulting on how to reduce headcount, a.k.a. The Bobs.

Gah! it's a software development consultant. They send you to a client. You implement something for them. Why can;t they say it's a software development job? They are looking for TOGAF and Zacchman framework. A lot of the terminology in the job description is borrowed from TOGAF, so I thought they are looking for an architect. Frickin waste of time!
