Management




1. Corporate power elites distinguished primarily by their distance from actual productive work and their chronic failure to manage (see also suit).

Spoken derisively, as in "*Management* decided that ...".

2. Mythically, a vast bureaucracy responsible for all the world's minor irritations.

Hackers' satirical public notices are often signed "The Mgt"; this derives from the "Illuminatus!" novels.
