Revenge of the Nerds

Revenge of the Nerds: "Within large organizations, the phrase used to describe this approach is 'industry best practice.' Its purpose is to shield the pointy-haired boss from responsibility: if he chooses something that is 'industry best practice,' and the company loses, he can't be blamed. He didn't choose, the industry did.
We use a LOT of 'best practices' where I work.
