John Cleese Has Met Superintendent McGinley!

Or was that Dot Scott? From John Cleese's recent essay in The Spectator:
"Interesting ideas often emerge from the world of management. One useful concept is that of the ‘articulate incompetent’. This is a person who speaks clearly and cogently and persuasively about something, without actually understanding anything about the reality that their words are intending to describe. Such a person is dangerous to an organisation because they can sound very persuasive, despite the fact that they have absolutely no clue what they are talking bout."

Thanks for the laugh. We could add Joe Darby, Hillary Douglas(okay maybe not him because it's clear he doesn't know what he's talking about)...but how about Gregg Meyers, Chris Fraser, Bill Lewis, Elliot Smalley, Doug's hard to stop.
