MOTW: Pontius Pilate Manager

Pontius Pilate Manager has the uncanny ability to completely absolve himself/herself of any blame attached to any unfortunate results produced by his/her staff and get away with it. This elusive quality, combined with feigning ignorance about bad outcomes in his/her unit is referred to by Pontius Pilate Manager as empowerment, a word Senior Management tends to go glassy-eyed and drool over. Using this combination of tactics Pontius Pilate Manager has survived numerous fiascos in his/her checkered career without so much as a scratch. Pontius Pilate Manager also rarely catches colds as he/she washes his/her hands frequently. (Sorry, couldn’t resist.)
