Befuddled and bewildered by the jargon used by corporate honchos? I have attempted to decipher:
‘Hit the ground running’: (beat around the bush);
‘Think out of the box’: (brains have fallen out);
‘Push the envelope’: (with own agendas inside);
‘Pick the low hanging fruits’: (dwarfs all of them);
‘Get into the loop’: (to get out of poop);
‘Zero sum games’: (blame games);
‘On the back burner’: (disguised procrastination);
‘No free lunch’: (but breakfast at Tiffany’s n dinner on the Dreamliner are ‘de jure’);
‘Best practices’: (of the worst kind);
‘Ball-park figure’: (keep figuring out);
‘Game Changer’: (day-dream presented as panacea);
‘Topline n Bottomline’: (can neither reach nor touch).
Peculiar & Perplexing indeed!
