JESUS: A system?
PETER: Yes, a system - so we can be more efficient, more productive.
JESUS: I see.
PETER: We need to establish goals and set targets.
JESUS: “Goals” and “targets”, yes.
PETER: We need to prioritise.
JESUS: Yes, “prioritise”.
PETER: We need to monitor, evaluate, assess.
JESUS: “Monitor”, “evaluate”, “assess”.
PETER: I was thinking of a focus group, a performance-review team, and a market-research unit; and we’ll want a data-extrapolation consultant and, obviously, a director of finance. I was thinking Judas is the man for the job.
JESUS: Thinking, Peter - or calculating?
