1. Dilbert, Alice, and Asok are free to be productive without PHB around.
2. PHB gets stuck for a while, loses weight, emerges more healthy and trim, and takes credit for team's soaring productivity.
3. PHB's absence frees up extra coffee for Wally.
4. Asok gets no credit except from his true mentor, Wally (see #3) -- but that's what really counts.
5. Carol is admired for starting the whole thing.
