Wally, Dilbert, Alice and the Boss sit at a conference table. Wally says, "I'm pleased to report another banner week of accomplishments!" Wally continues, "I streamlined my business processes while honing my participatory style and my proactive attitude, all while valuing diversity!" The Boss asks, "You watched the mandatory training videos?" Wally adds, "And I lost my free will!"
The Boss: Let's each share our accomplishments for the month.
Dilbert: To the untrained observer it might seem like I didn't accomplish anything. However, I did strategically "position" my project by socializing it within the company.
Dilbert: Then Wally and I help a "tiger team" lock up session.
Then I prepared the executive briefing package for the big meeting that got cancelled. Since then Ive spent most if my time looking for the best project management software to use.
And I did it all within ten percent of my budget goal,
Dilbert: Looking good.
Wally: wow all I did was that tiger thing.
