I think you should avoid jargon if you can.
Brainstorming is over used all the time – you get invited to a brainstorming which is actually just a meeting.
I think business language evolves.
Behavioural re-targeting, thought shower, get your ducks in a row, brainstorming, thinking outside the box, cascading down information, singing from the same hymn sheet.
I think it’s a way for business people to bond together so they have a shared jargon or argot which only they know.
We hit the hoot, which is all about going up to the microphone and telling sales people what you want to say, but for some reason it’s called the hoot.
I think jargon has a good purpose but it can also confuse things terribly.
One I heard recently is “that’s the elephant in the room” and I still don’t know what it means.
I think a lot of people get lost in jargon.
“Don’t do an Alan Sugar on me.” I think they thought they were trying to be funny and put themselves in a good position to get the job – they didn’t get the job actually.
Comparing apples with apples.
They’re ready to put the skin in the game.
