Corporate Lingo

The way the corporate bull shit seeps into people working in the corporates is easily seen in their verbiage.
  • People replace the word "problem" with the word "challenge." Recently I heard someone saying The challenge that I faced parking my car is that another car was parked in front of the gate
  • The important point to note in the presentation is that we are capturing 70% of the market share ( As if if we did not understand the main points of the whole presentation as it was so covered with bull-shit all around the slides or the language is so vague that we have to be told what is the main point)
  • Adaptability is important ( which means we don't know what to do with you so keep moving as we say )
  • Lets sit for a meeting ( We don't have anything substantial to give you but still, we would like you to have pity on us and give us something)
  • The industry we are operating is a new industry - ( If you don't understand what we are doing or why we are doing don't be flummoxed)
