You gotta speak the lingo [Oct. 25th, 2008|12:07 pm]
In my job, I occasionally have to work with consultants. Sometimes this is a good thing, and sometimes it's a bad thing.

One thing that's always a good thing is consultant speak. Where else but from a consultant could you hear words like "ideate"?

The consultants I'm working with now try not to use consultant speak, but sometimes they slip. This past week, after a meeting, this exchange took place:

Me: Did you honestly just say, "Open the kimono of shaking out the plumbing"?

Consultant: Yes, but it sounded a whole lot better in my head.
