Scott Adams provides an inside view of bosses, meetings, management fads and other workplace afflictions, through his cartoon character, Dilbert. The topics include swearing your way to success, humiliation as a management tool, and selling bad ...
products to stupid people.
I was pleasantly surprised to pick up the book The Dilbert Principle from the Management section in the company library! In his book on mismanagement, Scott Adams gives us the view of corporate culture, bosses, budgets, meetings, projects,
..." team-building exercises(!) and tens of such irritating stuff that bug most employees. Almost every statement he makes is substantiated with a strip from the Dilbert archives. In his prose, he is very tongue-in-cheek, provocative and funny. You can expect an average of 2 Dilbert strips or more per page (the book has 336 pages, do the math). Also, he quotes several of the emails he has received from his fans about the stupid acts of their bosses and management. In the end, he also proposes a new company model: OA5. The core principles being happy employees and efficiency. If you love Dilbert (either because you find it funny or because you actually live in a Dilbert-like workplace), you will laugh out while reading this book. Highly recommended reading!
The Dilbert Principle is: The most ineffective workers are systematically moved to the place where they can do the least damage - management.
