We demonstrate the existence of this problem in two contexts. First we found several different strands of practice within an independent entrepreneurial OR firm. Second an independent OR consulting firm working with client's internal research group found that the latter's approach conflicted wit its own, resulting in an unsuccessful project. We conclude that the "microlevel" problems of collaboration between individual practitioners and between groups, though largely neglected in the literature can be serious impediments to succes and renewal of OR practice
