yeah - i really love being a spirit crushed 9-5 cubicle slave.

I particulary enjoy sitting in traffic on the way to work or seeing the sun shining outside whilst i am listening to some toss pot go on about business process improvement or some other such garbage

it's vacuous sh*t

I am not sure what its point is - possibly promoting the work ethic, and saying things aren't so bad now compared to the 1940s and 50s, which would be true

You need to think outside the box, stretch the envelope and embrace the new paradigm to become a fully empowered colleague and achieve the upside by going the extra mile and giving 110%.

HOUSE!!

I read a long time ago that the Elite/Establishment encourage their kids to take up these rarefied, excess pay jobs so they can dictate down to the rest of us & manipulate the UK at will. :(

People like 'Krusty' appearing for example.

Bullingdon Boy + Boris etc

God, I'm so happy that I made a career change 5 years ago that means I now work exclusively with SMEs and never have to sit through such meetings... B)

'Milestones' is missing!

'Incentivise'

'brain storm'

'go forward together'

'110%' etc

Also a management one is KISS - "Keep it Simple Stupid" (along with 'buzz-word')

The "it" in question is anyone beneath oneself that one can pass the buck onto if SHTF or pass on any good ideas gleaned from a 'buzzer' to make oneself appear 'worthy' in front of one's senior management!

Didn't see it but the trailer for it in which she said "now the job we defines who we are" really annoyed me.

I most certainly would feel pretty pathetic if I defined myself as an IT contractor specialising in HR system implementations. It is the question I most dread when meeting people as there is no way to make it sound interesting, and it isn't but it pays well and allows me 4 days a week to do the stuff that defines me*

Why don't you say "devise websites then post drivel"

- you can go from there and make anything up to amuse or piss off the person you are chatting with :P

Quite. I sat through an NHS presentation to the local community recently. I wish I'd have had these Bingo cards to give out. Pretty much the same presentation as 18 months earlier.

One point K.I.S.S - "Keep it Simple Stupid" is probably a good thing. It's the complexity and mystic that 'management speak' adds that is the problem.
