ERRRRRRRRG!!! I hate those corporate and political buzz words- whenever I hear them they make me cringe and I have heard a lot of them lately .
A lesson in consultanese
The sound bites of the people behind the dreaded “flip charts” – I believe they are supposed to astound us with their intelligence. They are the “consultants” ( what exactly is a consultant anyway)and what do they do ?
ED NOTE:GEEK AND POKE ( One of my favourites- I just love the “take” by Oliver Widder)
One answer I received was ” They live over 60 miles away- are paid 250 dollars an hour – to tell you something you already know!”
They are not alone in my blame game of gobbledygook, they have plenty of company BUT it is WE THE PEOPLE that enable the gobbledygookers.
No 1. OUT OF THE BOX THINKING!!!
MIGHT MEAN JACK!
No 2. WIN WIN –
Well I have news for you someone always comes in 2nd and therefore loses- no such thing as “Win Win”

AND as for Moving Forward– not too bad as long as you know what is ahead

I am done with the – win win- out of boxes- moving forward thinking. I just want “common sense ” – “integrity” – “money where the mouth is to prevail- and I don’t need a study – a plan- a consultant – or ” Keyboard Kops” to evaluate .
Well it is still ok to dream isn’t it?
