Car-crash IT

Seeing a tv programme described as car-crash tv the other day made me think about its IT equivalent. We've all seen it - executive gets sold on a BIG IDEA after a couple of conferences in California / Nice / New York (delete as appropriate), doesn't really understand it, and starts down the road to disaster, lip-licking consultants in tow.
You know it's going to go wrong from the very beginning, but are powerless to do anything (other than stand to the side and watch, transfixed as it disintegrates, hoping you can write it out of your CV!)

Those working in Government departments must have a particularly good view of this...
