Management Speak

Postby durban » Tue Jan 08, 2013 3:25 pm

Think I brought this up a few years ago, but quite a lot of you work in Business environments...so lets have a go at inventing 'management speak' into our workplace for a laff.

Today I started the phrase 'Squirrel in a Glass Project'

I got asked what I meant, I said - do you not know this - at which point a few senior management staff replied that they had heard of it before...hah!

I then kept a straight face and said - it the name given to a project that is put in place simply because it can be done, not because it should....you can put a squirrel in a glass, but that doesn't mean he will like it....

From then on they all accepted it....I have no doubt the senior bosses will be using this soon ;)

We need more of these, please join in!

Maybe even getting KO2 references in.....

I always make sure to fit the word "Lob" into whenever talking work. There's an amazing amount of situations where you can lob something onto the table/into the debate/etc

Not sure I mentioned this before, but my first director, a rough man with a big portuguese moustache and a tendency for alcohol during lunch break, used the expression "licking the cherry", when someone was taking too long getting something done.
