The blame game

2008-06-02

    We have all been part of the blame game, by our choosing or by the actions of someone else.

    In todays Dilbert, Wally takes it to the next level.

    I work as a consultant and beyond the instant irritation I actually find some amusement in watching the blame game in action. At least when I am not a central player.

    I’ve had to work with people that CC’s and forwards every mail to a supervisor (or a hand full of peers) and insists on the same policy for booking meetings. My experience is that those that do what ever they can to protect their back are usually the ones starting the game.

    So, is their protective behavior the result previous games or strategic moves for the next one?
