The Cover Your Ass Manifesto



We are uncovering better ways of covering our own ass by systematically documenting all we do and blaming others in the process.

Through this work we have come to value:

Being always right over delivering value
Accusing others over resolving a problem
Finger pointing over team support
Measuring anything to find somebody to blame over doing our job

That is, while there is value in the items on the right, we first cover our own ass and point fingers, then we rightfully go home and bitch about you.
