The superfluous manager
Listen up people.
It’s not rocket science.
Stop reinventing the wheel.
You’re flogging a dead horse.
We need to use blue-sky thinking.
Let’s keep in mind our helicopter view.
Together we can work smarter not harder.
Peel the onion and drill down to the nub of it.
Decide what goes on the back burner.
Dotting the I’s and crossing the T’s.
So let’s all hit the ground running.
If we stay on the critical path.
We’re in a win-win situation.
Giving us the Wao factor!

(Seryianis & PEF)
