As I wrote two days ago when the holacracy thing started, it was just a matter of time before PHB would go get lessons from the guru.
This strip reminded me the days I was working as a programmer in a startup that just gave it's IPO, and the owner that knew nothing about technology got rid of the leading technical innovator, and started walking around in the cubicles being "interested." I took the advice of one of the other programmers to talk enthusiastically about the details of what I'm doing which could mean nothing to the "interested." Sure enough he never camped at my cubicle again.
The PHB should at least have indicated his recognition of Wally's greatness and begged permission to study the guru's methods. Wally would probably have jerked the PHB's chain anyway, but a bit of flattery was worth trying.
