How come “how to manage a camel”?

A camel is a horse designed by committee, Wiki describes it perfectly;

An expression critical of committees—or by analogy, group decision-making—by emphasizing the ineffectiveness of incorporating too many conflicting opinions into a single project. In this figure of speech, the distinguishing features of a camel, such as its humps and poor temperament, are taken to be the deformities that resulted from its poor design.

Poor camel!

How to Manage a Camel is all about promoting better group thinking and a way of bringing together lots of conflicting opinions around the subject of project management. Feel free to add your opinions and thoughts to any of the posts you see here.

Don’t worry, we won’t get the hump *bows head in embarassment*

A few little rules

* Avoid Typos – we hate bad spelling!

* Please no profanity (swearing) or slagging people off but feel free to flame on “with positive intent”

* Be fair and think about all sides of a discussion and how your comments may be read and taken before hitting any buttons
