Sketchnote: How Corporate Jargon Kills Performance

How corporate jargon kills performance

This sketchnote depicts key points from the article How corporate jargon kills performance; by Alex Brueckmann at Brueckmann Executive Consulting.


One of the most interesting characteristics I try to uncover at the start of a collaboration with a client is this: the amount of corporate BS and jargon that people use in conversations and meetings. While this might sound odd for a consultant like me (I realize that us strategy guys use a lot of weird lingo ourselves), but it tells me more about a team’s ability to reach results than you might think. Apart from being an annoying habit, why bother? Because corporate BS and jargon are more than just annoying. They are real performance killers.
