The fine-grained password policy is the only option - its not as easy to implement as it should be !

Its not necesarily a good idea for 'the boss' to be a domain admin, and its a very bad idea to do anything that weakens the password policy for this powerful group of users.

See http://blog.becker.sc/2010/11/step-by-step-guide-to-fine-grained.html for a step-by-strp guide (its for 2008 but 2011 is essentially the same)

Perhaps he should also remove the locks from the front door so that he doesnt have to get a key out.

Stupid ;)
