Managing Time Management

Playing buzzword bingo

BBC.co.uk has posted a great collection of comments from readers about management speak.  In their campaign against office jargon, they’ve listed 50 of the best worst examples, including:

  • product evangelist
  • incentivise
  • let’s touch base about that offline
  • forward planning
  • granularity
  • leverage
  • cascading down information

Anyone who’s worked in a corporate office environment will get a laugh out of these.  One commenter said that his employer had advised staff they were no longer allowed to use the phrase ‘brain storm’ because “it might have negative connotations associated with fits. We must now take idea showers. I think that says it all really.”

Coming from the ICT industry, “not enough bandwidth” was a particularly popular piece of jargon that grates.  What about you?  What’s your best worst piece of office jargon?
