Dilbert by Scott Adams has been poking fun at corporate culture and workplace communication since its inception nearly 30 years ago. And the above comic from last Sunday is a shining example — one that hits particularly close to home for us here at The Latimer Group. Dean shared this one with the team recently, and we collectively agreed that it would make a fun blog post for a Friday.
So, in an effort to find a little context to support this comic, I searched the Dilbert website for “Slides,” and was served a veritable trove of archived comics that poke fun at the “Powerpoint culture” that’s permeated the business world for the last 20 years or so.
Check ’em out at this link. If you’ve ever been part of a meeting that’s run WAY too long, or seen a presentation with a busy, overcrowded slide deck, then I’m sure there are more than a few panels in there that will make you chuckle.
Have a great day.
