This is a continuation of the previous comic. I’m still surprised when I think about how little value management puts into communication and teamwork. Every now and then the question “why do you need to talk about the project” keeps coming up. Hm, I wonder why?

One thing that I’ve learned over the past 2 years is that communication within a team is extremely valuable. I thought it was just something you say because it sounds right. But after what I’ve been through, I thoroughly understand it.

Growing up, Dilbert never really made much sense to me. But now that I’ve spent some time working in a couple different different industries and on different types of projects, it makes too much sense. Why is the workplace like this? Why do we always say yes to something before thinking about it first or, at the very least, give meaningful consultation on what can and/or should be done.

But it’s true.  It’s all true.
