when managers defer payment for something hoping for funding from another departments budget. From the Dilbert cartoon
Dilbert: Did you fund the infrastructure project yet?
Pointy Haired Boss: Nope, I'm playing budget chicken with the Director of Operations. I'm hoping that his department needs the infrastructure more than we do. If I can bluff him into funding the project with his budget instead of mine, I win.
