What's Business Speak?

Wikipedia defines Business Speak as "the jargon often used in large corporations, bureaucracies, and similar workplaces". You might know it better as business jargon, management speak, corporate jargon, corporate speak, corporate lingo, workplace jargon, corporatese or commercialese. Depending on your perspective, they are both utterly useless and absolutely essential terms we repeat so often in the workplace.

Whether you're part of the C-Suite or just an individual contributor, no one can escape the power of Business Speak. At the end of the day, we are all giving 110% to add value in an attempt to move the needle. Utilizing our core competencies, we can all become change agents in the next paradigm shift.
