In the beginning was the plan and then came the assumptions and the assumptions were without form and the plan was without substance and the darkness was upon the face of the workers and they spoke amongst themselves saying “It is a crock of shit, and it stinketh much”.
And the workers went to their supervisors and said also “”It is a crock of shit, and it stinketh much”.
And the supervisors went unto the managers and said “It is a container of excrement and it is very strong, such that none can come near”.
And the managers went to their directors saying “It is a vessel of fertiliser and none can stand its strength”.
And the directors spoke among themselves saying to one another “It contains that which aids plant growth and it is very strong”.
And the directors went unto the vice-presidents and said “It promotes growth and is very powerful”.
And the vice-presidents went to the President and said to him “This new plan will actively promote the growth and efficiency of this company”.
And the President looked on the plan and saw that it was good, and the plan became policy.
