Bossywork is busywork specifically designed to make your boss look less ignorant about his job. It consists of producing pages of documentation to explain the obvious or prove negatives (the product didn't change, so we don't need new education.) Much of bossywork consists of building slide decks from portions of other slide decks, since no manager can be expected to read more than one deck per day.
I have to get this bossywork done before the design committee meets since my boss is the committee chair. Hopefully, after that, I can get some real work done.
