Skr: "Be excellent to each other" is my favorite motto to live by.
King Something: Penis.
leonel: gerbilpox: By making us think outside the box, that's how. Duh.Outside the box? My synergistic enterprises are so ahead of the paradigm curve, I'm thinking INSIDE the box.
Danger Mouse: I was just litteraly asked"Hey! when we socialized our proposal to the stakeholders did we have any evaluation critera that we could assess them by, you know, in parrarel. I want to ensure we scratched everyone's itch."I have no farking clue what he is talking about. I told him I'd circle back later.
Cold_Sassy: I got your joke, and know you hate buzzword/corporate-speak as much as I always have.
TheGogmagog: Our H.R. is full of SME's who want our S.M.A.R.T. goals submitted for our A.P.R. process. No time for full words, let alone buzzwords./I need a list of smart goals that sound good yet I can achieve without doing anything.
muck1969: there are so many useless office-speak word-salad lines to hate, but the phrase "with that said" pisses me off the most. there are better words or phrases that could have been used to describe if the previous statement is in support of, or in contrast to, the subsequent statement. using "synergy" in place of "teamwork" is a close second. the snark in this thread is inspiring.
Ghastly: What does this mean for our proactive paradigms?
Muta: MY boss often asks, "Could you prado that out for me?"
CaitoStreet: Lenny_da_Hog: enthralledgeishagirl: All we need is a mission statement and we will be able to begin our journeyThose are the ones that piss me off the most, as someone who did a lot of industrial policy writing and training.Mission statements are actually important for policy writing -- The Preamble to the Constitution is a mission statement. It tells you everything you're trying to accomplish by establishing an administration or project plan.Then along come seminar gurus pushing buzzwords to middle-managers who don't really understand what they mean. They diminish the importance by applying it to everything, and then when you try to train someone using the phrase "mission statement," they think they're being patronized and roll their eyes at you.I could not agree more. The only thing I hate more then mission statements being trivialized are poorly written mission and vision statements.
