Lada's Important Definitions for the Bureaucratic Environment. Committee:
A work group created with the main purpose of finding and articulating reasons why a new idea will not work, or, failing that, why adoption of the new idea will cause more anguish within the institution than the idea's benefits are worth. Policy: A written statement, ordinarily using as many words as possible, to articulate an institutional position on a subject in a manner vague enough to permit multiple contradictory interpretations. Task Force: A group organized to present the illusion of progress without the inconvenience of actually moving the institution forward.

Loftus's Latest Collection. John Henry's Rule:
It is a lot more fun to sing about hard work than to actually perform hard work. Loftus's Sixth Rule of Government: When it comes to government programs, no matter how noble the purpose or grand the design, implementation is everything. Loftus's Seventh Rule of Government: Government programs never go away; they only change their titles. Loftus's Observation on Meetings: Meetings that you chair are infinitely better than those that you merely attend. Loftus's Advice for the Workplace: Research has repeatedly shown that the best response to the supervisor's query "Got a minute" is "No."

Lopez's Iron Law of Corporations.
In a business, everyone is expendable, but some are more expendable than others.

Loren's Basic Principle for Bureaucratic Survival.
The appearance of a bureaucracy is infinitely more important than its function.
