    Hey, I am management. Could someone explain this for me?

    I will settle with being brushed off with statements like "Inefficient use of resources when compared to world class business practice" that I can plug into my next ppt no matter what the topic I am presenting.

    Just some squabble over how to change the toner cartridge or some such.

    • Best practice for handover requires clear procedures and methodologies to change toner in a manner that provides growth opportunities. Win-Win.
    • Reduce consumable budget by 15%.


    Thank you Greg. Ever dependable.

    This is not the first time that a whole industry has been destroyed by the British Government and it won't be the last.

    Let's not kid ourselves that we will be missed, everyone will get poorer, the deficit will get larger and economists will write books that blame Brexit.

    I'm out-sourcing it to a managed print service to stop these unwashed cretins cluttering up the management office suite. Let them pick fruit!

    Stupid young programmer insists on using outmoded techniques, completely ignoring who has kept up with the literature of how to develop robust, maintainable applications. Usually it's the other way round.

    TL;DR Cheap employee dramatically increases TCO of application.

    Not that, as a manager, you care, as employment costs are immediately visible whereas TCO is over the lifetime of the application. By which time you've moved on.
    Down with racism. Long live miscegenation!

    • The trend is your friend. Observe the market trend, the moment lower highs are no more you get the @£$ out. No ifs no buts. ACT.
