This is an ironic newsletter – we like having fun.

For those who did not read previous issues: http://www.righetconsult.com/newsletter

Writing this issue was real fun :-)


Some weeks ago, we received a strange e-mail from X-City; that e-mail was sent to the address anyone can find on our website, i.e., central@righetconsult.com.

That e-mail was in another language, so quotes are in fact translations. We do not know which `communicate´ that fellow was speaking of, so we must assume he was citing us correctly.

We decided to write about this e-mail because … it is really funny and enlightening; it was good to take some hints.


The e-mail began with ‘Kind Eng. Central (I haven’t understood your true name!)´.

Look, what do we have here?

Have we anyone writing to a firm address and complaining because someone does not know who is working for that firm? What could be done here?

Could we put the name of our feline friends on our website, maybe? After all, they are very dignified cats and they take their social role very seriously indeed; but …Tailchaser and Inklet are very reserved cats :-)


From that e-mail: `This passage of yours is taken from a communicate that was pointed out to me …´

So, now we know the antecedents: that fellow was so busy attending his own business … that he could dedicate a good amount of time to comment a `communicate´ of someone who has never heard of him (no, not even Tailchaser and Inklet, and everyone here may assure you they are very knowledgeable cats).

But now we go to find out where the beef is! – unless Tailchaser … :-)

“Misfits of project management” is free and can be freely forwarded: some healthy fun is necessary in these modern times.

Being an ironic newsletter, it reflects only ideas. “Answers” or assertions that are not between inverted commas [‘….’] are not to be considered as “true” answers or assertions: that is only a way to express ironically what is perceived.

We make use of another set of inverted commas [“….”]: those are no quotations at all, just a literary device of ours to make concepts clearer.

If you desire to contribute with your experiences or ideas, please drop us an e-mail at central(at)righetconsult.com
