Systematic Buzz Phrase Projector

In Uncategorized on May 10, 2014 at 8:17 AM

When you want to sound as if you know what you’re talking about, consider using bureaucrat Philip Broughton’s invention. Now, professionals and students alike can seem like etymological geniuses, thanks to the “Systematic Buzz Phrase Projector. Using only 30 carefully chosen buzz words, you can woo your way through any written or oral presentation:

 

Column 1 Column 2 Column 3
0. integrated management options
1. total organizational flexibility
2. systematized monitored capability
3. parallel reciprocal mobility
4. functional digital programming
5. responsive logistical concept
6. optional transitional time-phase
7. synchronized incremental projection
8. compatible third-generation hardware
9. balanced policy contingency

 

USAGE: Randomly pick any three-digit number. Now select the corresponding buzzword from each column. For instance, “748” produces “synchronized transitional hardware”, or “839” yeilds “responsive reciprocal contingency”, a phrase which can be dropped into any report with the ring of authority. “No one will have any idea what you’re talking about,” says Broughton, “but they’re probably not about to admit it.”
