Hahaha, we were talking about cliche’s at work. We hear so many of them, it’s just outrageous.
There’s a good list over at the business cliche encyclopedia.
Here are some you’re guaranteed to hear flung around my workplace:
- Thinking outside the box
- at the end of the day (ARGH hate that one)
- pusing the envelope
- let’s take this offline
- win-win situation
- low-hanging fruit
- best practice
- going forward
- hit the ground running
- thought leadership
- silo’d approach
Another one to watch “sustainable” or “sustainability”…
Gotta say the main one that pisses me off: WEB 2.0. WTF? Web 2.0! What a crock That has to be the biggest marketing spin that the world has collectively done. If anything Web 2.0 is Web 2.0! Where everyone colloboratively kicks each others arse and makes them believe in such bollocks.
Did you know web 3.0 is here? It’s the interoperable marked-up ready to harvest dynamic semantic ever evolved transformed web.
