Today's Dilbert comic strip (which can be found here ) was clearly meant to present an exaggerated view of some management behavior the author must have seen in his time at Pacific Telesys. I've observed the same behavior in my time. A manager reads a non-technical article describing some very complex technology and makes decisions based solely and only upon the information found in that article.

Although there are many executives who would read the same article, find some value in it, and then would go out to learn more. Rather than using that rather slim foundation as the basis of a key decision, that decision-maker would speak with knowledgable members of his/her staff and others having technical knowledge and experience before rushing into something.

What's been your experience? Have you seen this type of behavior in your organization?
