Accenture has dropped Tiger Woods as a featured advertising icon for the company after a six-year sponsorship, the Wall Street Journal has just reported. Ironically, a recent column in the Journal focused on one of the key lines from Accenture's long-time and hugely successful partnership with Woods: "It's what you do next that counts."Here's the link to that WSJ column about Woods and his now-severed relationship with Accenture, one of the world's leading IT consulting and integration companies.
