Drill down is one of my worst.


A non word but more of a business gesture is nodding in meetings. Try to go to a meeting and not nod in it, nearly impossible.

Re: The Most Painfully Annoying Business Jargon

letters i get (and have to send out) starting with "this letter is to memoralize our conversation earlier today that ......".

im an attorney so any time i have a conversation with another attorney i then have to write this damn letter summarizing what we talked about.

i guess it brings up another really annoying phrase called C.Y.A. or cover your ass.

Re: The Most Painfully Annoying Business Jargon

Anytime an off-topic subject comes up in a meeting, someone will always say "We'll talk about that more off-line". Off-line? I didn't realize we were on-line!

"Low hanging fruit" makes me want to jump out a window.

Six Sigma always drove me nuts during operations management and statistics.

Ugh I hear you there. I hated Operations Mgmt. I was lucky to have a good prof who kept things interesting, but man the material in that class was a bore.

I hate this process/group! HATE THEM!

We have no idea what you do, so lets watch you for a week and then after a week we will tell you exactly how you can do your job more efficent.

Yeah right I have been doing my job forever and in a week of watching me you are going to tell me how to do it quicker.

In the history of the work force most people over time of doing the same job day in and day out figure out the most efficent way to do it, SO THEY HAVE LESS WORK TO DO.

Re: The Most Painfully Annoying Business Jargon

Hey Matty, let's take this discussion off-line. I think we can leverage our assets and develop a holistic approach to maximize our synergy efforts across multiple platforms. I'll want to loop in the other mods as well. Then we can circle back with the group. This might be a tough putt but let's not trip over midgets here. We'll have to true up the results with our projections.
