Cartoonist Scott Adams started drawing the Dilbert cartoon strip in 1989.
It now appears in more than 1,000 publications in 29 countries. The latest Dilbert book, The Dilbert Principle, is top of the hardback non-fiction, best-seller list in the US. Business Computer World will be publishing a selection of the latest Dilbert cartoons, along with classics from the archive.
Most of the strip's themes involve the world of work. Dilbert is the main character, a put-upon employee in a big company, who knows all about technology but little about office politics or people. He will never climb very far up the corporate ladder, but he can configure a network faster than you can say cyberspace.
Dilbert's boss is recognisable by his distinctive twin-peaked haircut and instant adoption of all the latest management fads. He's the natural target for Dogbert's entrepreneurial efforts. He might be technologically challenged and a bit of an imbecile, but his survival is never in doubt because he knows how to delegate - or at least how to shift the blame.
