FFF55: A new paradigm for proactive implementation of tailored win-win strategies

Iconoclasts.



Bernard hated management speak, but even more he loathed when he did all the work and colleagues took the credit.
So he devised a plan.

The next time one of the smarmy sales requested his ‘strategic input’ he returned totally wrong data.
“I think that’s what they call ‘low hanging fruit’,” he chuckled to himself.

Heads up.
This blog leverages direct campaigns, to communicate robust, scalable and best-in-class solutions.

We don't talk b*ll*cks. 

I had to attend a 'webinar' this week.  (A word which, by itself, sends shivers through me.) I have seldom heard such a mass of drivel in one 'journey through a cloud-based offering towards my ultimate discovery, delivered by way of one seamless transition'.  Hence this contribution to the G-Man's demand for 55 words of fiction.

Incidentally, this has got to be one of the first times a title has been almost as long as my story!

Brilliant, I have sat through so much twaddle of this kind in my working life. It is similar to the 'need' for a mission statement. I wonder how much executive time is wasted on 'brainstorming' the new mission statement when a bit of genuine work would make for better profit margins. Oops! Slipped into jargon there.

The company that affords me a bi-weekly paycheck doesn't use big words. Instead, they use initials. For big words and small ones all the same. Even the name of the company is initials. And no one knows what they stand for.
Memos are like trying to read a text from a 14 year old. And to listen to management, you get so lost on what each letter means that you can't understand a words they are saying.
Oops, that's more than 55 words.

You mean those business types still talk like that? I thought it was a 90's thing.
