Boss: I have a meeting in a few minutes, so I only have time to do some micromanaging. Dilbert: Wouldn't it be better do do regular managing? Boss: I don't have time for the regular kind. Dilbert: Then wouldn't it be better to do no managing at all? Boss: Some is better than none. Dilbert: Except when less is more. Boss: This got too complicated. How about I just stand behind you and suggest you Google stuff? Dilbert: Fine. I wish I had some data for this. Boss: Try Googling it.rnet,
dilbert: my profit forecast isn't aligning with our strategy
the boss: try adding some variables.
dilbert: what kind of variables?
the boss: the kind that make our strategy line up with our profit forecasts.
dilbert: but...then my forecast would not be accurate.
the boss: it's already inaccurate because no one can forecast complicated things five years ahead.
the boss: if we can't be accurate, we might as well be wrong in a way that is good for us in the near term.
dilbert: you make a surprisingly robust argument for evil.
the boss: and i was barely trying!
