My original favourite Dilbert

Dilbert.com
This is the cartoon that first introduced me to the genius of Dilbert. At the time, I was working on a business process re-engineering programme at Boots. There was a lot of political weaseling required. And, this being Boots, many meetings. The cartoon appeared on Tony Nice's desk calendar at just the most appropriate time. From then on, it became almost a catchphrase. And started my habit of collecting cartoons for the most egregious examples of corporate silliness, so that I could produce them as warnings, a bit like yellow cards.

Dilbert key words: premeeting, meeting

Dilbert - It's not in the budget!

The topic of scope creep came up at work today and I remembered that there is a Dilbert cartoon for every occasion.
