That should not be a word.

I feel the same way about the word "utilize". Anywhere you can utilize the word utilize, you could just use the word use.

Well, just heard an exec say how having all the clients in a sector is bad.  Sigh.

But I thought all problems were just opportunities, and such.

Ha!

But see if you have all the clients, you can't grow, if you can't grow then obviously that sector is declining and must be ignored! No profit can be had from a declining sector!

Have they considered genetically engineering up some new clients? Seems like it could be pretty lucrative, and as far as I know no one is even doing it.

Need to make clients clients, and some landmass, but this idea has merit.

I got the idea from the book Oryx and Crake. They were genetically engineering a new breed of customers because the old ones (that's us) could no longer survive in Earth's environment.

Roger, I came up with a new business term: "Fostering Engagement Towards Utilizing Our Goal-Setting Success."

I didn't read any of this thread, I was just clever elsewhere and wanted to share

The use of "agile" in the workplace indicates that said workplace is as agile as Trump in a tutu.

Over use of the word agile will make me stab people.

I take calls and solve problems for fucks sake.  Agile doesn't apply. Get problem fix thing.  Damn company is filled with cargo cult managers.  Though not my manager, he'll provide knives and help hide bodies after a buzzword attack.


Oh in other news, we put our IT guy in an office with windows.  This is a good thing, but feels wrong somehow.

About the Agile thing and my hatred of it, we moved from a TPS based model to an Agile model and were hounded about how they were different and we really needed to know how to handle it.

We did the same fucking thing only huddles were called standups.

Things got even more stupid when our team was down to two people.

They're screwing with the symmetry of the universe, here. God put his tech support guy in the basement for a reason.
