The Ten Rules of Management; 1. IE is always right. 2. If IE is wrong, see rule #1 3. If the Plan doesnt work, we will pretend that it works. If we cant pretend any longer, we will find an hourly employee to blame for its failure. 4. It is always better to manufacture favorable statistics than it is to produce meaningful results. 5. If you cannot make yourself look better on paper, make an internal rival for the next promotion look worse. 6. Reality is only a state of mind; the WOR is the truth we follow. 7. You are only as good as your previous days production. The moment that you can no longer make your immediate superior look good on paper, you become a liability rather than an asset and you will be treated accordingly. 8. When climbing the corporate ladder, keep your feet on the fingers of the guy below you and your nose up the butt of the guy above you. 9. If you cant find a problem to solve, you had better invent one fast in order to justify your job. 10.Never tell the truth unless you are damn sure that your immediate superior really wants to hear it. The illusion of success is more important than the reality.
