GREG DYKE AND CORPORATE-SPEAK

Stephen Pollard has a nice a pop at BBC chief Greg Dyke’s drift into corporate-speak and so I decided to send Stephen an example of a mission statement for his blog – which it appears he wasn’t sure was a piss-take or not (it was of course).

Ever since the brilliant Gus Hedges on Drop the Dead Donkey I have had an interest in management jargon and yet amazingly even after Gus popped the idea in the toster to see which way it popped up – the same jargon became part of political and public life as well as the world of commerce.

So I think it is time this blog focused on delivering on this issue. In fact, it is now our priority deliverable. So here goes. I hope this is inclusive:

A good (and funny) glossary of basic buzzwords can be found here

The jargon used in job advertisements is well dissected here.
