I imagine some are better than others.  My experience is that it doesn't
matter so much as to what the organization is as it is whether the
people involved know as much as they think they do.  The least informed
customers can sometimes be the best customers if they know enough to get
out of the way!

Oh I forgot to mention. It's a school district so if you have any

project 
is on it's 5th month.
