I must be Scott Adam's inspiration for Dilbert. My boss is a contractor, and leaving at the end of the month. ( Who ever heard of hiring a manager as a contractor? ) So now they're interviewing candidates for his position. The guy on the way out is bringing in these people with absolutely no experience with half of the technologies we are using! The position is supposedly a visionary position, with that person recommending/ordering what tool/technology to use for each project, and if s/he isn't even familar with the ones that the other teams uses, things are going to go from ugly to fucked in a very short time.
