Also: Fuster Cluck
Term used to describe the state of affairs resulting from too many staffers and not enough TRAINED staffers on a project. This usually happens as a result of a rush or deadline which cannot be met, when managers or planners resort to simply adding warm bodies to the effort out of sheer desperation or incompetence. Also results from having a surplus of supervisors or other overhead-related personnel who cannot actually perform any useful work towards project goals, especially where the prescence or contributions of these people hinders work performed by others.
"Man, we were 8 days behind schedule on that project so my manager decided to send us all of his interns as well as show up himself. Turned it into a complete clusterfuck. There must have been 20 guys in one cube at once."

Term that is military in origin, and used to refer to officers in associated positions of power and resulting decisions that resulted in: poor decision making, emotional reactivity, increased number of casualties, and an overall sense of distrust in poorly-qualified leadership.

Currently used in popular culture to describe any situation in which: extrememly poor decisions are made for the purpose of very tired and predictable personal gain, without consideration for how decisons impact others, and an overall sense of intimidation due to lack of competence and personal responsibility by the aggresor.
