The Ridiculous Business Jargon Dictionary

Posted November 12, 2012 by Marcy Twete in On the Ladder

Jargon. It’s both useful and annoying, equal parts confusing and enlightening. But somewhere along the lines, in the world of business, we began to speak in full jargon, which can be more confusing than useful at times. Since when did “I don’t have time” become “Let’s evaluate my bandwidth”? But these kinds of buzz words are everywhere in business.

I’ll admit it, there have been times in my career when someone used a “buzzword” or “jargon” and I had no idea what they were talking about. Chances are, you’ve been in this situation as well. Especially since jargon seems to change from industry to industry and sector to sector.

That’s why I was so excited to find Business Life’s “Ridiculous Business Jargon Dictionary.” If you hear one of those crazy words you don’t understand, head on over to the Jargon Dictionary and search the word. It might help you get ahead.
