Bullet Bureaucracy

ganked from Tufte

that style of management that generates all project documentation as powerpoint slide packs, favoring bulleted lists of pitch-speak over coherent ideas. acolytes tend to favor management by objectives as well.

i still haven't quite grokked how best to think in powerpoint. my best guess is, similar to the developers' penchant for removing vowels in variable names, simply remove verbs and qualifiers from sentences and re-format into bullet lists.

when to use it: absolutely never.
