On Business Speak


Some of the Business Speak I’ve heard this week alone:

  • Move the needle
  • In the weeds 
  • Riffing (meaning free form, making it up as we go)
  • the ever popular…100,000 foot view
  • Boil the ocean 
  • texture around the edges
  • get back to neutral 
  • flip the switch on
  • getting more religion around this
