and I quote "Never, never, never, never, never, never, never, never, never, accept responsibility for failure. "
If you follow orders and fail, the Evil Overlord (recruiter or the DEAN) will claim he told you to do something different, and your body parts will be used a castle decorations.
If you disobey orders and succeed, the EO (the Dean or ...) will act as if what you did was his idea, and you will be commended. The Moral: Do what works.
Find out what happened to your predecessor. Learn from it.
Always have a scapegoat arranged in order to explain every failure.

DIARY OF AN EVIL HENCHMAN
The story of a man,
standing behind the Man, making the Evil Plans
Starting on a new job today, and it couldn't have come at a better time.
I feel in robust health now that my rear end is healed up after taking that slug from the Black Bat, last month. I've felt cooped up and restless, and I'm looking forward to the work.
Boy, do I need the work, the little woman's been spending my dough left and right. Luckily my wife still doesn't know about my line of work. She still buys the lie that I'm a land surveyor for the firm of Frye and Sons. She keeps nagging me to bring the boss home for dinner.
"Honey I'd like you to meet my boss the Bloody Butcher, Bloody Butcher this is my wife, Meg."
