Scott Adams on A Humorous Workplace

Scott Adams is the creator of the ubiquitous workplace comic strip Dilbert, a character so iconic that it’s become an actual metric for judging workplace happiness: too many Dilbert comics on the wall and employees probably relate to the character too much but if there are no comics it’s likely indicative of upper management with no sense of humor. Adam’s humor comes from real experience. He’s no stranger to the corporate lifestyle and isn’t uncritical, calling leadership in general “a form of specialized evil.”


Scott Adams is the American creator of the Dilbert comic strip and the author of several nonfiction works of satire, commentary, business, and general speculation. His Dilbert series came to national prominence through the downsizing period in 1990s America and was then distributed worldwide. A former worker in various roles at big businesses, he became a full-time cartoonist in 1995. Adams writes in a satirical, often sarcastic way about the social and mental landscape of white-collar workers in modern corporations and other large enterprises. His new book is called How to Fail at Everything and Still Win Big: Kind of the Story of My Life.
