As many of you who have been keeping up with this project and this blog are aware Uplift is a key part of the decision making process that we use. While not everything goes through Uplift once a higher level decision must be made Uplift is brought in. Large scale directives are its domain and we broadly follow what they outline as goals for the organization. This makes them in some sense our boss. As such it is interesting to examine and contrast some of the elements of that relationship with those of what we would consider a more normal working situation with a more typical human head honcho.
