Submission + - WWII sabotage manual advocates modern management (hyperorg.com)

niteice writes: "A recently declassified US Strategic Services sabotage manual from 1944 gives techniques on how to covertly sabotage business from within in an enemy-occupied area. Some suggestions:

Insist on doing everything through "channels." Never permit short-cuts to be taken in order to expedite decisions. ... Bring up irrelevant issues as frequently as possible. Haggle over precise wordings of communications, minutes, resolutions. ... Be worried about the propriety of any decision — raise the question of whether such action as is contemplated lies within the jurisdiction of the group or whether it might conflict with the policy of some higher echelon.

If this sounds like modern management techniques, you're right. It reads as if someone replaced "sabotage" with "business" and gave it to your boss. Direct PDF link (2.2mb)."
