In the beginning, there 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 spoke amongst themselves, saying
"It is a crock of shit, and it stinketh."
And the Workers went unto their Supervisors and sayeth,
"It is a pile of dung, and none may abide the odor thereof."
And the Supervisors went unto their Managers and sayeth unto them,
"It is a container of excrement, and it is very strong, such that none may abide it."
And the Managers went unto thier Directors and sayeth,
"It is a vessel of fertilizer, and none may abide its strength."
And the Directors spoke amongst themselves, saying one to another,
"It contains that which aids plant growth, and it is very strong."
And the Directors went unto the Vice-Presidents and sayeth unto them,
"It promotes growth, and it is very powerful."
And the Vice-Presidents went unot the President
and sayeth unto him,
"This new plan will actively promote the growth and efficiency of this company, and many areas in particular."
And the President looked upon the plan, and saw that it was good,
and the plan became policy.
