I went to the office today for a SEVEN hour meeting with a vendor which thank goodness only turned into 5 hours with free breakfast and lunch. I didn’t have to talk too much and what I had to talk about, I knew like the back of my hand so no stress. So I amused myself by playing a little game. I realized this one project manager was using lots of corporate jargon so I just started writing a few phrases down. And now I’m going to share real phrases spoken by real project managers in a really big American corporation.
we’ll take a waterfall approach
we need the learned resources
get efficiencies from this process
based on early transition
how granular we want to get
throw the balls in the air and try to balance them
I wish I would have started from the beginning, I would have had many comic strip starters for Dilbert.
