Buzzword Bingo

RSS Feed RSS feed   

The Buzzword Bingo forum is a place to post examples of ludicrous, convoluted and meaningless buzzwords and marketing drivel dreamed up by those seeking to sound more important and meaningful than they actually are.

We are developers, which means our job is to simplify complicated and ill-expressed requirements in order to produce something elegant and useful. If you want to impress us then please just tell it to us straight. The less pre-processing we have to do the more we will be interested.

At a past company our CEO liked to use this saying "Win the War and THEN Fight the Battle". It used to drive a colleague of mine (a developer) absolutely mad when he was told to "Win the war and then fight the battle" during a project or when he was being rebuked.

In addition to this I made sure that the saying appeared in various places around the office, his start up screen, desktop, screensaver, posters in the office... I even got his mother to post one on his bedroom door... was especially proud of that achievement.
