In the beginning was the plan.
And then came the assumptions.
And the assumptions were without form.
And the plan was completely without substance,
And darkness was upon the face of the workers.
And they spake unto their marketing manager, saying,
“It is a pot of crap, and it stinketh.”
And the marketing manager went unto the strategists and sayeth,
“It is a pile of dung, and none may abide the odor thereof.”
And the strategist went unto the business managers and sayeth unto them,
“It is a container of excrement, and it is very strong, such that none may abide by it.”
And the business managers went unto the director and sayeth unto him,
“It is a vessel of fertilizer, and none may abide its strength.”
And the director went unto the Vice President and sayeth,
“It contains that which aids plant growth, and it is very strong.”
And the Vice President went unto the senior Vice President and sayeth,
“It promoteth growth, and it is powerful.”
And the senior Vice President went unto the president and sayeth unto him,
“This powerful new plan will actively promote the growth and efficiency of the company
and the business in general.”
And the president looked upon the plan and saw that it was good,
AND THE PLAN BECAME POLICY.
