Code Mocking? How about business plan mocking?

After 40 years of participating in software code reviews, I couldn’t stop laughing when I encountered a recent Scott Adams‘ Dilbert cartoon:

Many is the code review meeting that I wished I could stand up and start mocking the fruits of a software engineer’s labor.  Forgetting that some times the code could strike back.

After wading through 100 applications for an upcoming new venture investors’ conference, I wanted to send an email invite to my colleagues to set up a parallel meeting for business plan mocking. We should set up an award for the clueless that sends them to a workshop on Running Lean or at a minimum remedial hockey stick revenue plan generation.  Maybe a dose of business plan BS would help as well:

May the mocking be with you?
