Dilbert – cause or effect?

I often refer to Dilbert for fabulous examples of how companies shouldn’t work, and note that people particularly identify with Dilbert because you can often see things going on at your own or another business that appears to come straight from there. Dilbert is brilliantly descriptive… or is it?

At this month’s Upstarta meeting in Brisbane, Peter Lock postulated that some real life Pointy-Haired-Bosses actually use Dilbert as a management handbook, which would of course explain why their department or company looks like it did.

What do you reckon? Could Pete be right?
