How do we deal with the non-tech managers.
For no reason, the top boss has hired a B-school grad (Just because he's from a top University) and have handed over the responsibility to "drive" the project.

We have never missed a deadline nor there's an issue with execution. We do have an Engineering manager as well. We are all very happy to interact with him.

But the new guy talks a lot on the white board and this is quite irritating. He knows nothing about the product but talks with wide mouth as if he's pushing a lot to "get things done".
"Get things done" BS. this is one of the worst lines to get into my ears.

Do you think I should write to the top boss and ask him be removed out of the loop?
He adds no value in the entire chain of things.

Do you have the system of dumb folks sitting on top and doing this "getting things done" as well? is this culture going away or not? D'Oh! | :doh:
