Using a Dilbert cartoon as an example of why your manager is wrong is not an example of good consultancy skills.

    heh. it wouldn’t be the first time I’ve done that!

    which one was it? the one where there is 70% chance of the project mildly suceeding and 30% chance of corporare ruination? 😉

    Already hung that one on my whiteboard at work in the area I reserve for “Pending Projects” (aka Projects We’ll Never Have Time To Get To)

    Funny, I’ve actually just printed that one today – as a subtle hint to place near my manager’s desk 🙂

    I’m wondering whether this is considered more appropriate for employees than for consultants, or if dilbert cartoons turn out to be good career-ending devices… 😉
